Commitment Mass
Dear Parents & Sacramental Children

Our Sacramental programme for the year which includes First Reconciliation,
Confirmation and First Holy Communion begin this Sunday 3rd of March
with the Commitment Mass. You are invited to attend Mass at 9:30 am at the
Basilica followed by a cup of tea at Dean O Reilly.
Please bring a plate of food to share after mass. You can drop them off to Dean O’Reilly in the morning before Mass. During morning tea you will meet your prayer partner from the Parish and our first meeting begins on Monday 4th March at 7.00 pm in the school staffroom.
Looking forward to meeting you all at mass.

Thank you, Adrienne & Tracy

“Everyone of us needs half an hour of prayer each day except when we are busy - then we need an hour.”   
(St Francis de Sales)

Currently we are in the first and much smaller block of Ordinary Time in the Liturgical year.  In Ordinary Time the priest wears Green vestments. This first block of Ordinary Time starts after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (This year it was Sunday 13 January) and goes until Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday - next week).  Ordinary time will start again after Pentecost, which is roughly 50 days after Easter Sunday and will continue all the way until the Feast of Christ the King on November 24th, after which Advent will start.  Out of a total of 52 weeks in the year, 34 of them are in Ordinary Time.  
God Bless
