On Monday 3rd December Fr Luigi and Brother Richie came into 4B and spread the word of God to the children and parents. We were reminded about the importance and real meaning of Advent. The word “advent” means an anticipation of the arrival of a person or an event. Advent is the season that reminds us of an arrival of something great. As a season in the Church, it is placed at the beginning of the Church year. It is the beginning of a new spiritual journey for each of us. We are reminded once again that the promise God made about our salvation has come. This promise is the true hope beyond any other hope we have. We build our traditions around this time to remind us of that great mystery of Christ’s coming for our salvation.
Throughout the entire month of November, we recall our deceased relatives, friends, and all the faithful departed who may yet be waiting for the full joy of heaven in purgatory. We pray for them, remembering that likewise, these people (being purified) have the power to intercede for us too.
November 1st is the feast of All Saints when we remember all saints and martyrs, known and unknown, throughout Christian history. For the feast of All Saints, Fr Luigi celebrated Mass for the parish and our school community. We reflected on our calling to become saints and how we can always seek the intercession of the saints who have gone before us who are now in Heaven. We also remembered and prayed for our loved ones who have died. Some teachers from the school read the readings while the children from year 5 were altar servers.
On Tuesday 30th October, Fr Luigi and Brother Richie came into school and led 3B’s class mass. We also invited our parents and Mrs Paczek to attend. Before the Mass we had to prepare by selecting readings and writing our own intentions. Some children were selected to read including our class apostle, Kathryn. We also sang hymns giving thanks to God. We would like to thank Fr Luigi and Brother Richie for leading us in prayer.

On Monday 8th October the whole school went to Mass to celebrate the schools Feast Day. The school is named after Our Lady of The Rosary as this was the day that Canon Moore received the news that the building of our school would take place. We would like to thank Fr Luigi for leading the Mass, the children for their excellent readings and Peter for rehearsing with them. We would also like to thank the children in Year 6 for leading us in singing.
Please continue to pray for the school during the month of October.
We began our new school year with the celebration of Mass as a school community. The readings were read by Year 5 children. Year 6 led the choir, who sang beautifully. We prayed that God will guide us through this new academic year, helping us to grow in the love and knowledge of Christ.
