Confirmation and Communion

Wed 26 Sep, 2018

“Communion opens and unites us to all those who are one in Jesus Christ. Here is the wonder of Communion: we become what we receive!”

How wonderful! We have now completed our Sacrament Program for 2018.Two Confirmations and seven very special First Holy Communions have been celebrated over the past three weeks whereby eighty children have completed the Rites of Initiation to become full members of the church. Each ceremony was moving (I had a tear in my eye at each one) and how proud were our children! Congratulations.

There are so many people to thank: Our welcoming, caring and pastoral priests: Fr Philip, Fr John, Fr Paul and Fr Krish. We are blessed to have spiritual guides who can make all of us feel so loved. Our wonderful teachers: Mrs Izzo, Ms Muir, Mrs Clark, Mrs Lintern and Mrs Conlon, who accompanied the children on their faith journey and ensured the smooth running of our ceremonies. Thank you to all the musicians from school and the parish who contributed their gift of music to our liturgical celebrations, especially Mrs Turner and Mrs Wedding. Next, our Home Group Leaders, host families, volunteers, from other year levels, who hosted our supper following our liturgies; your generosity and commitment to our Sacrament Program is appreciated.

Love in a Bag

Thank you for your kindness in supporting this SRC initiative. If we can all do a little it makes so much difference. The 80s casual day was also a great success and a lot of fun, raising $563 for Love in the Bag.

Have you heard of the ripple effect? One small smile can lead to another smile, or a small act of kindness and so on it goes. Recently with my broken arm in its cast I came across a man who had dropped something. He was in a wheelchair. I stopped to help him, but didn’t have enough dexterity to pick up the item and dropped my own jacket, so someone else stopped to help and we all ended up having a jolly good laugh! I don’t know what the other shoppers in Rundle mall must have thought.
