Week 8 Bulletin

Our world is impacted by COVID-19, and as we respond we must surely show respect for each other; for the work of our leaders, our medical professionals, and all those in work that provides service.  Respect in the supermarket, on the bus, at work and wherever we move.  Let us think about how we can look after ourselves, and each other.  In the Bulletin this week:

  • Year 3, 4 and 5 reflect on their Swimming Lessons

As Lent begins let us be reminded of Mother Rose Columba Adams words;

We have now begun our Lent, and begin it in the spirit in which our Lord began His passion. At His
Last Supper, Jesus, knowing that the Father had put all things into His hands, rose from the table,
and taking a towel, put water into a basin and began to wash his Disciples' feet.
... During Lent we must ask our Lord to wash our feet
