Last Tuesday, we enjoyed a very beautiful and faith-filled school and parish mass to celebrate the feast day of our patron saint, St Rita of Cascia. There was a wonderful sense of respect and participation during the service and many parishioners and parents in attendance complimented the school on the excellent behaviour and participation of the students. Congratulations and thanks to all those who contributed to this celebration, especially Mr Mulhearn, Mrs Anderson and all of the students who carried out their special roles so well.
This weekend, a number of our St Rita's students will be celebrating the Sacrament of Eucharist, receiving Holy Communion for the first time. We hold them in our thoughts and prayers and wish them every blessing on this special occasion in their faith lives.
