Chaplain’s Notes

At the start of each year a Commissioning ceremony is held in which all students, parents and teachers of candidates for the Sacraments during the current year, commit to the program and receive a blessing. This will take place at St Anthony’s Parish, Cnr Grange and Neerim Roads, Glen Huntly on Sunday 28 February, 11:00am Mass.

The Sacrament of Penance or First Reconciliation will be held in the College Chapel at a date to be confirmed. Preparation will commence during Term 1.

Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday 28 August 2016, 11:00am. Mass at St Anthony’s Parish Glen Huntly. Classes will commence Term 2.

First Communion will be celebrated later in the year (date to be advised).

Lent

Chaplain's NotesThe College marked the beginning of this sacred time in the Church year with Homeroom Liturgies. Students participated in the prayers and received the ashes. Students were challenged to think about how they might change something in their lives during their preparation for Easter and also how they might adopt an activity that assists others. This would be a good topic to pursue over the dinner table!
