Year 9 Retreat

Changes to Venue for Year 9 Retreat day and Year 10 Leadership Day October 12 and 13.

 

Unfortunately the Army Depot has fallen through as our venue, but we are lucky enough to be able to use the Torregiani Room in the Parish Centre at the Cathedral for both days. Year 9 students need to meet inside the front gates of the Cathedral at 9.00am on the 12th of October. Year 10 students meet at 9.00am on the 13th of October. Both groups will be dismissed at 3.00pm in order to catch the school buses. 

Mass at O'Connor

Mass at O'Connor is at 9.15am on Wednesdays. Although Year groups attend particular masses, everyone is welcome.

Year 12 Mass

Thank you Father Francis for presiding over Year 12's final Mass at O'Connor. It was lovely that this could be shared with our students families. It is always wonderful to come together as a worshipping community and in stressful times such as HSC preparation that God is with us. Year 12 students received a blessing from Father Francis and the light was passed on in the form of a candle from teachers to students.

Year of Youth

The ACYF kicks off the Year of Youth which will celebrate 10 years since WYD Sydney 2008 and focus on engaging our youth in the bigger life of the Church. It will culminate with WYD 2019 in Panama.

October, A Decade a Day.

In this month of Mary, somewhere at O'Connor everyday, students will be saying a decade of the Rosary and be praying for family life.

 

Heavenly Father, grant that our families may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches. Make us ever more mindful of the sacredness and beauty of the family in God’s plan.

 

Bishop Kennedy has produced this clip encouraging us to pray for families.
