This coming Thursday 29 March, we will hold our Easter Liturgy for all students and staff. The Liturgy, held during Holy Week, will focus on the very important events of the week, from the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the shared Passover meal with his disciples on Holy Thursday, through the passion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday and the joy in the risen Christ on Easter Sunday.
Easter is the most important time of the year for Christians, it is a time to rejoice and a time that has been well prepared for during the Lenten season. During these past 40 days, there has been great evidence of the active faith life of College members. On Ash Wednesday 14 February, our 48 Year 12 Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion distributed ashes and assisted in Ash Wednesday liturgies in all Homerooms, giving witness to prayer as a focus for Lent.
Giving alms is another key focus of Lent. This has been very evident through the donations to Project Compassion. The official fundraising commenced on Caritas Day, held on 7 March when an outstanding $2500 was raised. Donations to Project Compassion have continued to come in throughout Lent helping Caritas, the Catholic Global Aid Agency to meet the needs of the poor locally, nationally and internationally. The final total of donations will be announced following the Easter Liturgy. I thank everyone for their great generosity and ongoing support of this wonderful work. I also wish everyone a very happy and holy Easter and invite you to join in The Sacred Paschal Triduum in your parish.
Holy Thursday, Mass of the Lord’s Supper
Good Friday, Passion of the Lord
