Easter blessing

By Therese Wilson

We have been in the season of Lent, which began on Ash Wednesday six weeks ago. During this time, we have been asked to commit ourselves to Prayer, Fasting and Almsgivings, using our hands, our hearts and our voices to turn to God.

Lent ends on the evening of Holy Thursday when the church celebrates the three holiest days of the year – Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. May all our families have a happy and holy Easter break.

These past few weeks, students busily prepared their stalls and fundraisers for Caritas Day. All money raised supports Project Compassion for Caritas.

Our Junior School’s student representative council, supported by Head of Junior School Kellie Osborn, initiated support for the people of Ukraine this Caritas Day, encouraging a gold coin donation for the Caritas Australian Ukraine Crisis Appeal, with opporutnity for people to dress in blue and yellow.

We stand with our families of Ukrainian heritage, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Prayer for the people of Ukraine has been shared by our students on several mornings these past weeks.
