STUDENT FREE DAY
Friday 22nd February is a Student Free Day with staff from St Benedict’s attending the annual ‘Bishop’s Inservice Day’. This day provides an excellent opportunity for staff to listen and reflect on our mission from a range of presenters, including Bishop Michael. The central theme of this year’s inservice day will be Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’” – Caring for Our Common Home.
OPENING SCHOOL MASS
This morning we celebrated our Opening Year Mass. We were joined by parents, grandparents and members of our Parish along with Fr Matthew who lead us in our liturgy. We thank Fr Matthew for his time and look forward to his guidance throughout 2019. Thank you to our Year 6 students, Mrs Morrison, Miss McCosker and Mrs McLaughlin for their preparation, leadership and ministry. A big thank you also to our choir for their wonderful singing and contribution and to Mrs Tink Boyd, Mrs Langdon and Mrs Clifton for their time and support of the students.
SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM 2019
This year we will begin our program with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Children who are currently in Year 4 or above and who have been baptised are able to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Letters will be sent home with children tomorrow outlining times and dates for parent/child information sessions.
