Chair of St Peter

Remember The very word "cathedral" in Latin or Greek, means "chair." This feast celebrates the mission of teacher and pastor given by Christ to Peter, and continued in an unbroken line down to the present Pope, of course now Pope Francis. The physical Chair of St Peter is at St Peter’s at the Vatican. We celebrate the unity of the Church, founded upon the Apostle Peter. So it celebrates church unity and the leadership and guidance of the Pope passed down from St Peter.
Next week we celebrate the beginning of Lent with a Mass next week for Ash Wednesday March 1 at 9.15 am. Parents are most welcome to join us. This Mass will be instead of the the school Mass on Thursday morning.
