Genevieve Bryant and Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF)
O'Connor was blessed on Monday to have one of the awesome performers at ACYF this year give a free concert. Genevieve Bryant sung the theme song to the ACYF in Adelaide two years ago and performed this song along with a lot of other great songs. Attached is a link to some of her work. Genevieve will be performing at ACYF in Sydney in front of 15000 people. Our year 11 students will be a part of that crowd. ACYF isn't just great music, there are work shops, games, talks and a pilgrimage walk across the Harbour Bridge. Year 11 students are reminded to keep up with the payment schedule for this great opportunity.
Lasallian Youth Gathering (LYG)
Keep in your prayers the 15 students from years 11 and 12 who are on a pilgrimage to LYG in Sydney during the holidays. LYG is gathering of young Lasallians from all over Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. It will be a great opportunity to deepen faith and it includes some service work in Sydney.
Founders Day is Friday June 30 (last day of College this term) and what a great day it is shaping up to be. To celebrate our Ursuline heritage 15 students and 3 Ursuline sisters from St Ursulas Kingsgrove will be visiting the College and participating in the days activities. These include an assembly that highlights the heritage of the Ursuline nuns and the De la Salle brothers. This will be followed by Mass celebrated by Bishop Kennedy. We then enjoy a concert provided by our own talented students. Lastly the traditional mayhem of House Capture the Flag organised by our captains.
Thanks to all those families who donated to the Vinnies Winter Appeal. The Vinnies students here organised a wonderful prayer service to pray for in solidarity the cold and homeless.
