Stories of Jesus’ Life

As part of our unit of work about Community and Eucharist, many children who celebrated Eucharist said that the Eucharist means to live a life more like Jesus.

We named the things about Jesus that we admire. Jesus …

is a healer    is someone who forgives     shows kindness          

welcomes others     shows compassion      has empathy

treats others fairly     teaches us how to be a peacemaker    is a story-teller

First Eucharist

CA5FJHCWA reminder that the Presentation Mass for children who will be celebrating the Sacrament of Eucharist is on this weekend. For most families, we expect that you will bring your child to present themselves as a commitment to the Eucharist program at the 8:45 Mass on Sunday morning, 17th July at St Therese Church.

The children will be making a commitment statement and handing out their personal profile card to one of the parishioners during the Mass as part of the celebration.

It is great to hear that families who are unable to attend on Sunday morning at St Therese are committing to attend on Saturday night at Anglesea.

Finally, a reminder for those who haven’t sent their preference of dates for the Eucharist celebration (either the 21st or 28th of August) could you please email your preferred date to Peter Caddy in the next couple of days. Please check the list below to ensure that your child’s name has been added to the list.

The 3/4 students will be involved in various roles within the Mass including reading prayers of the faithful and Scripture readings as well as participating in the processions.

Mass begins at 8:45 AM at St Therese Church.
