2. Special Character Week 9 Term 4 2020

Welcome/Kia Ora/Malo e Lelei

Special Character Focus
The Third Week of Advent
Preparing our Hearts and asking for Grace
We prepare this week by feeling the joy. We move through this week feeling a part of the waiting world that rejoices because our longing has prepared us to believe the reign of God is close at hand. And so we consciously ask:

Prepare our hearts and remove the sadness that hinders us from feeling the joy and hope which his presence will bestow.
School and Family Mass- 
Thursday Liturgy
Presenting the Liturgy and Gospel is a service opportunity and Ministry for our children in spreading God’s word. Our children are proud of themselves every week either through singing, videoing and acting the gospel. It is a privilege for our children to serve and present the word of God.

Thank you to Year 3/4 Miss Sollano's class for the presentation of the gospel at the Liturgy last Thursday. This week there was no Liturgy.

Next Week- Tuesday evening is our end of the year Liturgy for our Year 8 and Junior Nativity. You are welcome to join us for Liturgy at 6:00 pm on Tuesday in the Basilica. 
“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
     my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”
