The Sacrament of First Eucharist
We congratulate the students who received their First Eucharist at Sts Peter and Paul’s last Sunday June 23rd. It was a reverent and very special occasion for the students who were beautifully prepared, nervous and full of joy. There were many proud family members present too. Father Dean celebrated the Sacrament explaining the significance of this event in a way that was thoughtful and well explained. We thank their teachers Colleen Gilles and Joss Coaley for their dedication and contributions in preparing the students. The attendance of many of the staff at Galilee at both celebrations of the sacrament of First Eucharist at Sts P and P and OLMC, is much appreciated. Many thanks to all involved for your support of the sacramental program at Galilee.
Feast Day of Sts Peter and Paul
30 June - Whole School family Mass to celebrate the Feast day of Sts. PP @ 10:00am.
We would like to invite the whole Galilee school community to celebrate this Mass. We'd love to see you there. Afterwards from 11:00-1:00pm, there will be a Talent Show, delicious food in the church hall and an Animal Farm in the church car park.
If your child is interested in participating in the Talent Show as a musician, singer, choir member, or other, please let me know and I'll schedule them in. Please let me know if your child would like to participate in the singing of an African Blessing song by Andrew Chinn (Australian Catholic singer/songwriter).
Social Justice Leader's Dog/Cat Food Drive
The Year 6 SJ school leaders, Cody and Drew are continuing to work with the other SJ leaders in the school. They have created posters strategically placed around the school to create awareness of a 'Pet Drive.' The Pet drive was inspired by Cody and his father who works for The Sacred Heart Mission. The intention is to collect food, old blankets, pet toys and other items to distribute to the homeless on our streets so they can look after their pets. These pets often provide the people who are homeless protection as well as good company. Please discuss this and any possible contributions with your family.
The pet goods can be brought to school before the end of this term and will be distributed by the The Sacred Heart Mission.
Friday Morning Prayer in Term Three
In Term Three we will be starting a Prayer Group before school on a Friday morning at 8:15 until 8:35am. All members of the Galilee school community are welcome. The objective of this Prayer Group is to pray for any needs of the school, as well as the well-being of the students, staff and families. It will be nurturing and loving. You don't need any qualifications or experience to attend. If you have a confidential prayer request, forms will be distributed at the beginning of the term for you to fill in. Then please drop these into the box which will be on the prayer table in the Administration foyer. We look forward to The Galilee Friday Morning Prayer Group growing and flourishing.
