Parent Frequently Asked Questions during Remote Learning

As Catholics, we must continue to nurture our spiritual wellbeing. Prayer is a significant way we can remain connected to God. He wants to remain in close relationship with us all.

I have attached information about a link called Liturgy Help. Families are able to use this resource to strengthen their personal and family prayer.  It is a free website! Details on how to log in are attached.

There is also a prayer for ANZAC day tomorrow to say with your families and prayers for meal times.

Live streaming of our Parish Mass continues to be available. Please find details below.

God Bless,

Michelle Cassar
