A Message for All South Australians

Message from His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia

The Vice-Regal program has been adjusted to take account of the public health situation, resulting in the necessary cancellation or postponement of most face-to-face engagements.

His Excellency the Governor and Mrs Lan Le will, however, seek to continue their regular engagements and communication with community members and organisations by other means for the time being.

To this end, His Excellency has prepared a message to the people of South Australia here.

Transcript available here.

TELEVISED SERVICES

OTHER RESOURCES

Sunday Mass is screened on Channel 10 at 6:00am every Sunday morning.  Click Here to watch via 10Play.

Good Friday Lord's Passion | 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Easter Sunday | 10.30am - 11:30am


As we enter into this sacred week, we know it's important during these challenging times to carve out some time for prayer and reflection and to purposefully connect with others in new and innovative ways.  In many ways our journey through Holy Week is both more challenging and equally more important in praying communally and finding ways to connect with our call as Easter people.

Being Prepared | Showing Respect | Remaining Connected

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:

  • The Year 3 Class hosted the first ever 'virtual' Assembly

  • The Reception Class investigated their names, asking their parents how their names were chosen, and where it came from

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

  • Primary classes were a sea of colour and noise in their music workshops with Jon Madin

  • Year 7 tour the College Chapel with a very special guide: Sr Jill!

  • Year 10 Geography went on a coastal walk between Henley Beach and Glenelg, to study the environmental impact of coastal development

  • We see pictures from the 2020 Student Leaders Gathering: Leaders for the World God Desires, held earlier this month
