A huge congratulations to Brooklyn, Lily, Jenna, Jackson, Holly, Ivy and Willow who were baptised in St Paul's Church with Year 6 and Year 3 present to enjoy this special occasion with the children and their families.
It has been a privilege to witness seventeen of our children on their faith journey by receiving their First Holy Communion. They worked with Fr Petroc to prepare themselves for this special sacrament.
The month of May was a wonderful chance for the children to understand the importance of Mary. Children were invited to bring a posy of flowers to present to Mary during the liturgy when we crowned the statue. Each child made their own rosary which we used each Friday morning to pray a decade of the rosary together. Children had the opportunity to write a prayer in front of our shrine to Mary. This allowed us time to explore the importance of Mary to our faith.
A huge thank you to our parents who made donations towards Christmas hampers this year instead of gifting our staff. We were able to create 12 Christmas Hampers for our vulnerable families at St Paul's. These were very much appreciated.
