The High Point of our Faith
The term is racing towards the holidays and our Easter celebrations. Though we often think of Christmas as a high point in our church celebrations, it is Easter that is central to our faith. Palm Sunday begins our Holy Week and culminates with the Triduum celebrations of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. I urge parents to guide your sons through this special time, sharing your own experiences and thoughts on what your faith means to you and attending the services available in all parishes.
The whole College community will gather next Wednesday to share in a para liturgy focusing on the Stations of the Cross.
Each of our primary classes has been busy preparing a tableau of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday respectively. They will gather in the College Chapel to share the Easter story.
If your Lenten preparation has been a bit sketchy, it is still not too late to make an extra effort to move closer to God through prayer and sacrifice. You might like to share the following prayer when you sit down to dinner with your families:
God of the Resurrection, in this Lenten and Easter season, may your light shine among us in a new way.
May it dispel darkness and guide us when we are lost.
May the warmth of your light nurture our souls
May the light of Christ bring healing and hope to our families,
Our school, our community and our world.
Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday 28 August 2016, 11:00 a.m. Mass at St Anthony’s Parish Glen Huntly. Classes will commence Term 2.
