FEAST OF ST ANTHONY MARY CLARET
On Wednesday we celebrated the Feast Of St Anthony Mary Claret, the founder of the Claretian Missionaries. St Anthony Mary Claret was a missionary who mission was to spread the word and the love of God just as Jesus had asked us to do. His motto was to ‘Light the whole world on fire with the love of God.’ The community of St Peter Chanel follow the motto to Love One Another . Therefore, may we all share our love with all we meet in our thoughts, words and actions.
May you know God
May you love God
May you serve God
And May you praise God
Just like St Anthony Mary Claret
OCTOBER – THE MONTH OF THE ROSARY
Pope Francis says, “the Rosary is a prayer that always accompanies me; it is also the prayer of the ordinary people and the saints… it is a prayer from my heart.
The month of October is dedicated to the most Holy Rosary; the most widely practised prayer amongst Catholics around the world. Children from Years 3-6 have joined Lucy Sgro, the leader of the Legion of Mary at our church, to recite the Rosary. Year levels have also been praying the Rosary in the classrooms. I invite you to say the Rosary with your child and take the time to pray and reflect upon Jesus’ life through praying the Rosary.
Notes will soon be distributed for children in Year 4, who have received their First Holy Communion, to express their interest in being trained as an altar server. Should you have any queries regarding this, please feel free to come and see me.
GRADUATION MASS CHOIR AND ALTAR SERVERS
Notes will soon be distributed for those willing to support our Year 6 students at their Graduation mass. This is a special occasion and assistance from students in Year 5 would be greatly appreciated. Should you have any questions, please come and see me.
