A Prayer for Confirmation
Lord, You send out Your Spirit to touch the hearts of all people, so that they may believe in You and in Jesus whom You sent. Look kindly on all candidates for Confirmation as they listen to Your voice. Open their hearts to Your Spirit and bring to fulfilment the good work that You have begun in them. As we prepare these children for Confirmation, make each of us an instrument of Your love. Teach us to appreciate what is holy in others, and to be patient with what we do not understand. Deepen our faith in the Gospel and help us to pass it on by our example. We pray that You will continue to guide us and sustain us. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
Message form the Principal
Our thoughts and prayers are with a school family who had a family member recently pass away. These times are not easy and the support of friends and family is always much appreciated.
Please keep in your prayers our students in Year 4G and Year 6 who will be making their First Eucharist and Confirmation this weekend. Congratulations to the students in Year 4W who made their First Eucharist last weekend. A big thank you to all staff involved in preparing the students for the celebration of their Sacraments.
Congratulations to Mr Chatt and our Interschool Athletics Team on winning the Interschool Carnival this week. Well done and thanks to Mr Chatt for organising the students and holding extra training sessions before school. All of this commitment paid off with such an outstanding result. This is a first in many, many years and we will be looking forward to a similar result in 2021!
A reminder, students will finish this term on Friday 11 December. Students will start school in 2021 on Monday 1 February.
God Bless and keep safe.
