Chaplain’s Notes

Year 8 Last Supper Reenactments

This term our Year 8 students have been to visit the Jewish Museum. To complement this experience they have participated in a remembrance of Jesus last supper with his disciples.

The students were invited to think about why Jesus adopted the extraordinary role of a servant and washed the feet of the disciples. As they engaged in washing each other’s feet, they reflected on being out of their comfort zone; having someone in their personal space; caring for those who can’t care for themselves and respecting the dignity and needs of others.

They followed this by sharing in the prayers and a meal as Jesus did when he gave us the Eucharist.

First Communion

Congratulations to Carter Kessling who received his first communion recently. Carter spent several weeks preparing for the Sacrament. With his family standing beside him, Carter received Jesus for the first time on 27 October, 2019. 

VCE Examinations

VCE examinations are well underway and our Year 9, 10 and 11 students will commence exams shortly. It can be an anxious time for our young men and I ask the Lasallian Community to hold our students in your prayerful support during the days ahead. You may like to use the prayer that follows:

Compassionate God,
Grant our students clearness of mind,
strengthen their determination,
ease their anxieties,
and guide them to peace in you.
We ask this through your Son Jesus,
our companion on the journey.
