Please keep the Year 4 students in your prayers as they will be receiving Holy Communion for the first time this weekend. It is a very special time in their lives, and I am thrilled that we can go ahead with the Masses even though we are still in Phase 4 COVID-19 restrictions. When you look at the word ‘communion’ you will notice that it has the smaller word ‘union’ in it. To me, that is what this Sacrament is all about. It is about us coming together as a community to be in union with God. Once we receive the host, we become like a tabernacle which has the presence of Christ within us so we can go into the community to do good things for one another. I would like to say a huge thank you to the Year 4 teachers, Mrs Robertson, Mrs Carr and Mrs Tucker who have done a fantastic job of preparing the students so well.
