Lent

A majority of this term has been spent in the Church Season of Lent. The forty-day Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Holy Thursday evening with the Celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. It is a time for Christians to commit to strengthening their faith through the three pillars of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

We are most grateful for the generosity of our College families who supported and donated items for our Easter Raffle – we were able to put together nearly 70 gift packs for prizes. All money raised from our Sausage Sizzle, Easter Raffle and Project Compassion Boxes will support projects coordinated by Caritas in Australia and neighbouring countries. Thank you for your support!

Stations of the Cross

We concluded the term with a whole school assembly: a prayerful reflection on the Stations of the Cross led by our Year 5 students. We remembered the path Jesus took on Good Friday. On the way to His death, Jesus showed us how to live and how to die. We cannot rise with Christ unless we walk the path with Him.

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” [Luke 24:5]

Happy Easter to all SBC families!
