Let Us Pray
God, may Your light guide my day, and your spirit bring me peace.
May I stand in solidarity today with all my brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering.
May we be united in your love, and may I work to build your kingdom here on earth.
Our children are learning about the Church season of Lent and they are preparing for Easter, and the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus. During Lent the annual Caritas Australia Project Compassion Appeal takes place. Donations to Project Compassion allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development, to work with local communities around the world to end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.
The theme of Project Compassion 2023 is ‘For All Future Generations’ and reminds us that the good we do today extends to impact the lives of generations to come. It invites us to make the world a better place by working together now and finding long-term solutions to global issues. Project Compassion boxes will be collected at the end of term.
Catholic Education Week
This week is Catholic Education Week (Sunday 12 March to Sunday 19 March) and the theme for this year’s celebrations is ‘Forming lives of faith, hope and love in the light of Christ’. Catholic education seeks to provide students with a high-quality education that is inspired by the example of Jesus Christ.
Our School Captains and SRC student team represented St Augustine’s at the annual St Patrick’s Day Mass and spent time afterwards celebrating with students from other schools in the Treasury Gardens.
Sacrament of Confirmation
Our Year 6 students will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation on Friday 31st March 6pm @ St. Christopher’s Church, Airport West. Please keep these students in your thoughts and prayers.
