Dear Parents
Thanks to all the parents who were able to help at swimming for the past two weeks, your help was much appreciated.

The Convent Cup sport day for our senior children will be held at Verdon College on Friday 27th March. We are currently getting quotes to have the netball courts remarked so hope to have that done shortly.

WEEK 6 2nd – 6th March
1st Week of Lent (Pray, Fast, Give)

Caritas Lenten Program
The theme for Lent 2020 is Renewed by the Spirit. Pope Francis challenges us all to be transformed and renewed by the Spirit so that we can follow the path of love. When we do this we become God’s ambassadors on Earth.
The 2020 our school resources are entitled Caritas in Action: Restoring Hope and Spreading Love and feature inspiring stories from all around the world of how Caritas is working alongside communities in need to restore hope and help them overcome challenges.
WEEK 7 9th – 13th March
Week of Lent (Pray, Fast, Give)
13th March Anniversary of Pope Francis election 2013

Sundays first reading was Genesis 12:1-4, The Call of Abram
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

Pope Francis 2019 The courage to take a risk for God’s promise
“The Lord’s call … it is the loving initiative whereby God encounters us and invites us to be part of a great undertaking.  … Every vocation is a summons not to stand on the shore, nets in hand, but to follow Jesus on the path he has marked out for us, for our own happiness and for the good of those around us.”

We give thanks God for all those who have chosen the vacation of parenthood.  May you always be a blessing to your family and to others.  May you remember you have been and are blessed.

Congratulations to our recent Charism award winners and all the children who received certificates.
