Opening Mass – Wednesday 3rd March
Our college theme for 2021 is “Faith in Our Future” which was developed with the senior students. It relates to the 200-year anniversary of Catholic Education in Australia which is “Faith in the Future”. The celebrants for the Mass will be Bishop Shane McKinlay, Fr Mike Pullar and Fr Nathan Vellar. It will be a whole school Mass under the covered area (weather permitting). It is for staff and students only due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, the Mass will be live streamed for parents, families and friends who wish to be able to be online participants. Mass will commence at 11.30am – (Year 7 students process in and sit with their House group led by their House Leader when directed). Mass will conclude in time for lunch.
Ash Wednesday & Shrove Tuesday
Homeroom Mentors led their groups in an Ash Wednesday prayer this week. Due to the lockdown, we have rescheduled Shrove Tuesday activities and the Ash Wednesday liturgy and distribution of ashes to next week. Shrove Tuesday pancakes will be served next Monday 22nd Feb by the VCAL students at recess and lunchtime. The Ash Wednesday liturgy and Project Compassion launch are next Wednesday 24th February.
Project Compassion is our major fundraiser for the year that runs during Term 1 for Lent. We are looking at having a Casual Clothes Day for Project Compassion on the last day of Term 1 classes on Tuesday 30th March.
Saint Patrick’s Day Feast Day
Patrick House will celebrate their Feast day on Wednesday 17th March. More details to come closer to the date.
