2. Special Character Week 6 Term 1 2016

We are now in our 5th Week of Lent. Lent is a time for Prayer/Karikia, Almsgiving and Fasting. Here are some suggestions how we can all get ready for Easter.

Personal Prayer
Prayer for others in need
Pray for help with a problem
Thanksgiving prayers
Say a quiet prayer to yourself

Give some extra time to your family tonight
Write to/email/text your parents/grandparents
Give to Caritas Lenten Appeal
Help with Garden clean up at weekends
Give heaps of smiles away

Fast from impatience today
Fast from unkindness today
Fast from laziness today
Fast from snacks between meals today

Reconciliation Times
Father Wayne has invited some priests from Dunedin to help with reconciliation after the 5pm Mass on Saturday 12th March and the 9.30am Mass on Sunday 13th March. This is a wonderful time to help us get ready for Easter.

Here is a lovely Youtube clip I shared for staff prayers this week. Some of the teachers have shared this with their class as well. 
Cherish your memories. Recall those that make you smile.
Ann Dooley/Co. Director of Religious Studies
