Food for thought:
Lent is a time to get our hearts in sync with the heart of Jesus.
- Pope Francis

February 21, 2018: Swimming Carnival
Well done to all who were involved in yesterday’s Swimming Carnival. The MacKillop Team were the overall winners – that makes it two years in a row! It was heartening to see our students give their best and participate in such a positive way. We love to see them being great sports, cheering for their team mates, encouraging others, accepting the challenges associated with a swimming competition and facing their fears. They certainly made us proud.

February 7, 2018: Project Compassion 2018
Students will also receive a Project Compassion box, in which to collect funds for Caritas Australia during Lent. This year the theme is “A Just Future” and we will be talking with the students about the real meaning of justice and how their choices, their words and their actions can help to make this world a more just place. Through your generosity during Project Compassion this year, you are empowering young people to build a just future for themselves, their families and their communities.

For Catholics, Lent is a season of penance, prayer, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday. You might like to download and print a copy of the Lenten calendar below, to help the members of your family to focus on what’s important during Lent.

You might also like to make this Lenten prayer your own in the weeks ahead…
For the times when I have not loved you, I am sorry.
For the times when I have not loved others, I am sorry,
For the times when I have not loved myself, I am sorry,
Loving God, I ask your forgiveness.
Open my mind and open my heart and fill me with your healing peace.
Amen.
