Congratulations to all of our students who have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Thank you for keeping these students in your prayers.

Year of Family
Pope Francis has announced that 2022 is the Year of the Family.
The Year of the Family will conclude on 26 June 2022, on the occasion of the tenth World Meeting of Families in Rome with the Holy Father.
Pope Francis established the Year of the Family to help strengthen faith and live God's joy more fruitfully in family life.
Lent - A season of reflection Lent.caritas.org.au
Let’s continue to support Project Compassion’s theme of ‘For all future generations’
As we approach Holy Week and the end of our Lenten Season, I encourage each of us to reflect on our lives, our Lenten promises and remind ourselves of how our faith and God is present in our lives.
Through Project Compassion, we are focusing on their theme of ‘For all future generations’. We are reminded as we look around how important it is to give, support and guide the generations of the future and those less fortunate than ourselves to ensure that we together can build a better tomorrow.
We ask that all the family donation boxes are returned by Wednesday 30 March please.
Big thank you to those who have returned their boxes already.

Holy Week & Easter
Our school will be holding stations at school for the children to prepare for Holy Week. We have been preparing for Easter each day this week with every grade sharing their dramatisation of the events of Holy Week, starting with Kindergarten showing Palm Sunday and concluding with presenting Jesus carrying the cross and his crucifixion. We will share photos of this with our community.
Holy Week and Easter is occurring during the holidays and I encourage each of us to join with our Parish for the events
surrounding this important time in our liturgical calendar and part of our faith. We are looking forward to celebrating the Easter Season with many more people this year, remembering that last year we had such restricted numbers.
May the forgiveness and healing peace of the Risen Lord be with us all this Easter.
We pray that our families at Our Lady of Good Counsel and our global community, that we will be filled with joy, compassion and hope for a better tomorrow.
Enjoy a peaceful, safe and relaxing holiday and I look forward with more of you in the near future.
