Chaplain’s Notes

Year 7 Liturgies

Year 7 Dunstan led the community in prayer on Tuesday morning in the Tiverton Chapel. The students had focused on “disability” and took as their starting point the Gospel account of curing the man born blind. In formulating their liturgy they discussed the many forms of blindness that hamper people in the world today; blindness to God’s love; blindness to the needs of others; blindness to their own faults.

Their contribution to the prayer life of the College was a gift to all present. Parents are always welcome to attend the Tiverton Chapel for an 8:15 am start each Tuesday morning. Please sign in at Reception before heading to the Chapel.

Sacraments

Baptism
Next Tuesday we pray for Gus Osborne (Yr 7 Vincent) who will be Baptised into the Catholic Church. May God bless Gus and fill him with grace, peace and love as he enters his new life of faith.
