Education in Faith

Term Two

Project Compassion update

Last term Galilee partook in fundraising for Caritas Project Compassion. We raised $156. Funds collected will help empower people to build a just future for themselves, their families and their communities. Thank you!


Year Level Masses

On Friday the 26th of April, the students from Years 3-6 attended the Parish Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel at 9am. The message of the service was of the resurrection of Jesus and that He is alive! His holy name can be called upon at any time by anyone, in times of trouble, sadness and great joy.


Mother's Day Mass

We invite all families to our Mother's Day Mass next Friday the 10th at 9.30am in St. Peter & Paul's Church. Thank you to the Year 1 teachers and students who have prepared this Mass. We look forward to seeing you all there.


Sacrament of First Eucharist

The Eucharist Faith night for parents and students was held last Wednesday evening in the Galilee school hall. It was a very well attended event with the students and their parents engaged in the learning. Special thanks to the staff at Galilee (Colleen Gilles, Joss Coaley and Dorothy Hall) as well as Father Dean for their input and planning. The Year Four students will begin preparing for this Sacrament at OLMC or StsPP. Please keep these students in your prayers.


A prayer for our First Eucharist candidates

"May your First Communion celebrate your friendship with Jesus.

As you grow in this friendship may your words be gentle and your touch be kind.

May you hear whispers of Love in your heart each day.

May you have fun in discovering God hidden everywhere!

And, may you remember to thank God often for the gift of life."

Caring for our Common Home

Within STEM (Science, Technology, Economics and Mathematics) all students are exploring the concept of Sustainability, which links wonderfully with the Catholic Social Teaching of ’Caring for our Common Home’ previously known as ‘Stewardship of God’s Creation.’ This teaching allows us to acknowledge that we are all interconnected and that our actions impact on others around the world – particularly the most vulnerable and marginalised – meaning we need to take responsibility for our actions and decisions. How can we truly ‘be green’ – it is more than just recycling, reducing and reusing. It goes straight to the heart of what we buy and use each day, so that we consume and waste less – and so that what we do consume is as ethical and responsible as possible.
