Making Jesus Real – Week 9 Term 4

Our focus this week is particularly, important as we conclude our school year:

On Thursday morning, we will give thanks as a school community for the gift of this year, with all its blessings, and especially the gift our Year 6 students.  We hope that our community will come along to celebrate Mass with us at 9am. 


The third Advent Wreath Candle which will be lit on Sunday (Gaudete Sunday), is known as the Joy Candle.  The word Gaudete means “rejoice” in Latin. 

The spirit of joy that begins this week comes from the words of St Paul, “The Lord is near.”  This joyful spirit is marked by the colour of the third candle which is rose pink.
