Confirmation Group.
A reminder please if you haven't already to fill out form and return to school as soon as possible with Sponsor's name and Saint chosen along with $5.
The students will undertake Reconciliation after Mass. They will also have a practice with Father Wayne next Wednesday morning for Confirmation.

Confirmation Mass is on Sunday July 1 @ 9.30 am
Please would each family bring a plate to share for the gathering after the Confirmation Mass in the Dean O'Reilly lounge.

So many things to celebrate this week. The feast of Corpus Christ or The Body and Blood of Christ. This is the Holy Day to remember the Sacrament of the Eucharist or Holy Communion. Many Parishes will have children making their first communion on this day.  
Also, it is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 
This image of Jesus was first imagined in early as the 13th century and maintained deviation through to the 16th and 19th century even to today. 
This image of Christ depicts Jesus’ humanness 
and Jesus love for humanity.

St John the Baptist - John the Baptist was a contemporary of Christ who was known for evangelization and his baptising of Jesus Christ.
John the Baptist was born through the intercession of God to Zachariah and Elizabeth.  John began public ministry around 30 AD, and was known for attracting large crowds across the province of Judaea and around the Jordan River. Pope Francis invites all of us to evangelize by our word and deeds, witnessing to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  John the Baptist's feast day is June 24th.  Did you know that our diocesan patron saint is St John the Baptist!

God Bless
