Almighty and Everlasting God,
You have given the human race Jesus Christ our Savior as a model of humility. He fulfilled Your Will by becoming Man and giving His life on the Cross. Help us to bear witness to You by following His examples and make us worthy to share in His Resurrection. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.
We pray ...
We pray for... our school community as we prepare for Easter, for Mrs Mary Camden on the passing of her husband Bernie (Bernie played the organ for school masses and liturgies for many years), for those experiencing loss and devastation as a result of the floods, and for all those who are currently unwell.
Yesterday students from Year 4 had the opportunity to attend Reconciliation and Year 2 said a quick hello to Fr Chris.
Wow! What an amazing turn out at Family Mass last Sunday. Our biggest yet. It was lovely to see so many families gathering to celebrate Mass and afterward enjoying the sunshine over a cuppa. Thank you to all the families and teachers who supported this Mass. This celebration also gave us the opportunity to see and pray for some of the First Reconciliation and First Eucharist candidates.
Term 2 - Family Mass Date
2nd May - 9.30am St Nicholas Church (Year 3 and First Eucharist Candidates hosting)
PROJECT COMPASSION BOXES
Calling all Project Compassion Boxes filled or not! These can either be given to Mrs Dunst at school next term or alternately taken to St Nicholas Church and handed in at one of the masses scheduled for Holy Week.
First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparations have begun with the program for the students commencing next term. Thank you to all the parents who came to the information sessions and enrolment Masses. You would have received a pack with lots of information and important details. Please send in paperwork and money to your child's class teacher at your earliest convenience.
FIRST EUCHARIST DRESS- Donate?
We are continuing with a more traditional formality to our First Eucharist that many parents have requested in recent times, relating to the children’s dress for the occasion. The girls are being asked to wear a white dress with white tights or stockings and shoes, while the boys are asked to wear black trousers, black shoes, white shirt and a tie. While this attire is being requested, we are conscious of imposing any extra burden on our families and hope to be able to assist anyone who may be finding it difficult to acquire any of these clothing. Therefore, if you have any of these items of clothing at home that you could donate to our clothing pool here at school, we would love to hear from you. Please email or send items in to Mrs Dunst. Thank you in anticipation of your support.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
A whole school Stations of the Cross Liturgy was held today. The school community gathered together to walk in Jesus’ footsteps. Staff, students, parents and friends engaged in prayer, singing and reflection focusing on the events of Jesus’ last hours of life on earth. Thank you Mr West for setting up and to all who helped commentate the stations.
MOTHERS' DAY - MUFFINS WITH MUM & MASS (Advanced Notice)
A Whole School Mother’s Day Mass will be held on Friday 7th May (Week 3) at 9.30am at St Nicholas School Undercroft. Before Mass we will also enjoy a muffin with our 'mums'. We would like to invite all mothers, grandmothers and friends and hope you will be able to join us for this special occasion.
