We thank you to our parishioners and parents who are continually supporting and praying for our children.
Celebrating mass is an opportunity for each child to serve and preach the word of God. Our children are proud of themselves every week either through singing, videoing and acting the gospel.
You are welcome to join us for mass at 9:15 am on Thursday in the Basilica. 

Thank you to Year 5/6 Mrs Thomas's class for the presentation of the gospel last week.

Faith Insights

WEEK 3 15th – 19th February (Green)
17th Ash Wednesday (Violet)

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent in preparation for Easter. It is also the start of the Caritas Lenten Program. The theme for Lent 2021 is “A New Way Forward” – taken from Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’. This theme reminds us that God provides everything we need to overcome obstacles and push through the walls of fear and uncertainty throughout our life’s journey.

Message from Pope Francis  - Lent: a time for renewing Faith, Hope and Love 
'Dear brothers and sisters, every moment of our lives is a time for believing, hoping and loving. The call to experience Lent as a journey of conversion, prayer and sharing of our goods, helps us – as communities and as individuals – to revive the faith that comes from the living Christ, the hope inspired by the breath of the Holy Spirit and the love flowing from the merciful heart of the Father.' 

Thank you/Malo 'Aupito
God Bless
