Dear Parents and Carers
Father’s Day Breakfast
This Friday, August 31, the Yr 3/4 parents will be hosting a breakfast for our dads from 8:00am. We look forward to serving and celebrating with all our dads.
There is an Awards Assembly on Friday at 9am.
Local Sporting Groups
Earlier this week, I sent out a list of local sporting clubs that our students are involved in. If you’re interested in joining a summer sporting group, we might be able to put you in contact with other families doing the same.
PRAYER FOR RAIN
Loving Father, you are the giver of all gifts.
You care for us in our needs.
You listen to us in all that concerns us.
We pray for rain to come down abundantly on our drought affected land, particularly in this region of Australia.
We take the many gifts of creation that you have given us so much for granted.
We have taken for granted plentiful rain and the importance of abundant harvests. Please forgive us.
Return now rain to our parched land. Bless and protect families immediately impacted by this severe drought – especially on our farms.
We pray through the intercession of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop in our special need.
We make this prayer, and all our prayers, through Christ our Lord, the source of all our hope and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
