RE News: Meaghan Younger
Religious Education Curriculum5/6 have been investigating the history of the Catholic Church in Australia and the role it has had in shaping our world today. Many families at St Michael’s have a long connection to the Parish and School. We’d love to hear your stories. Please get in touch with Miss Kapantais, Ms Figura or Ms Younger if you would like to share some special memories of the history of our Parish.
1/2 were amazed the other day when Mr Webb
received a phone call from God! They are looking at how we communicate with God. How is your communication with God going? Is it time to try out a new prayer ritual for yourself?
Religious Life of St Michael’s School Community
Feast of St Mary MacKillop of the Cross
Thank you to 1/2 for your beautiful prayer service celebrating the Feast of St Mary MacKillop of the Cross last Friday. It was lovely to all be celebrating prayer together, even when we were in our own classrooms.
WSPT for Feast of the Assumption
We look forward to be led by 5/6 this Friday 14 August in reflecting on the importance of Mary, Mother of God, in our lives. Classes will simultaneously pray together from 9:00am on Friday morning. Families you will be in our hearts as we pray together on Friday and look forward to when we can safely gather in larger numbers again soon.
The Diocese of Brisbane have some fabulous resources that we love to use for education and prayer. One that has been created for families to use for prayer at home. I encourage you to access this wonderful resource to enliven your family home prayer practices.
Home preparation – Week 3 'Being Sorry for Sin'
Children: Why do we need to say sorry?
Parents: What was the most challenging element of the learning about sin this week? Do you have questions for Father Loi about this concept? Maybe make a note of them for discussion at our Parent/Child Formation evening on Thursday.
Feast of the Assumption
A reminder that the Feast of the Assumption is one of only two Holy Days of Obligation observed in the Australian Catholic Church and as such all Catholics are asked to attend Mass on 15 August each year. Special masses are being held at St Michael’s Church this Friday (6:00pm) and Saturday (9:00am) for the Feast of the Assumption. Father Loi reminded us at Masses this past weekend that attendance at the Saturday evening (6:00pm) Mass does not fulfill the obligation as this is a Vigil Mass for Sunday 16 August.
If you are planning on attending Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help please book in on the Parish website to assist with COVID Safe restrictions http://cg.org.au/belconnennorth
