2. Special Character Week 1 Term 2 2016

On Sunday 12th June, children who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Term 4 2015 will be taking their next step on their Journey of Faith, receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. The children will begin their preparation lessons in weeks 5 and 6 of this term. As well as the preparation lessons we will be looking at the lives of some of the Saints. This will help the children when they come to choose a Saint's name for Confirmation. I will be sending home an information card that needs to filled in and returned to me. This is what the information card looks like.

We will have a practice with Bishop Colin Campbell on Friday 10th June in the Church. Parents are welcome to join us. I will confirm the time nearer the date. After Confirmation we have morning tea in the hall. Each family is asked to bring a plate to share with their family, prayer partners and parishioners who may wish to join us. Parents from the children who were confirmed in 2015 are asked to help with the morning tea.
Mr and Mrs Wylie will be holding the parent meetings on Monday 23rd and Monday 30th May at 7pm at St. Joseph's School. Adrienne Wylie will be available to hold another meeting if this does not suit some parents. Adrienne will be sending a letter home to parents to inform them of these meetings.
On Monday 16th June St. Joseph's School will join with St. Kevin's College to celebrate 'Catholic Schools Day' with a Mass at the Basilica at 2.00 pm.
