Confirmation

Year 6 students are continuing their faith journey as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on May 20th. Throughout our InquiRE unit, students will reflect upon the life and work of Spirit Filled people and will consider their own role in the Mission of the Catholic Church. 

Can you name the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit?

Who, in your life, is a Spirit Filled person?

Confirmation

Today our Year Six students received the gifts of The Holy Spirit through the sacrament of Confirmation. The Confirmation was held at St Patrick’s Cathedral. Congratulations to our young people who took the next step in their faith journey. May they share their gifts and talents with others and follow in Jesus’ footsteps.

We offer our Confirmation candidates this blessing…

In each moment of your life, may you feel the Lord’s embrace.

May you sense his guiding presence in each new challenge that you face.

May his peace and light be with you as you travel through your day

And may you realise how precious and special you are in every single way.

Confirmation Retreat

Today the Year 6 students from St Charles and St Kevin’s participated in a Confirmation Retreat day at Holy Cross. We had a guest speaker from Caritas Australia who created an awareness of social justice through workshop activities. We used the Phoster App to create images and captions on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The students received a personal letter from their parents/families acknowledging the gifts they see in their child. This coming Wednesday the confirmation candidates will be meeting Archbishop Hart at the Cathedral and rehearse for their upcoming Confirmation.
