National Sorry Day is an Australia-wide observance held on May 26 each year. This day gives people the chance to come together and share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities. Stolen generations refer to Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.
Thank you for the wonderful response to the online Reconciliation workshop. Your children’s participation in answering questions was a credit to them. The ceremony for your child’s Reconciliation is at 6.30 pm on Wednesday the 1st June at St Christopher’s Church Airport West.
Please bring with you, your child’s decorated stole to the church for the ceremony.
A note is being sent home next week with further information. Please keep an eye out for it.
Sunday’s Gospel 22nd May
In this gospel Jesus tells his disciples to love each other, but also that they must love as he has loved. The love Jesus showed was selfless which led to his death on the cross—his glorification. It is this love that reveals the love of God, who is love. This new commandment of love is to be the true mark of a Christian in a truly Christian community.
May the community of St Augustine’s continue to take up the challenge and act with love towards all people.
