Mission and Parent Engagement News
Thank you to all the families who attended our special parish events in the past few weeks. It was delightful to see families participating in the Feast of St. Martin’s international food festival on Saturday, 4 November and our wonderful celebration for our Kindy and Year 6 Family Mass last Sunday. The connections made and the involvement of children and families in the mass were truly special. Many parishioners praised the excellence of our families and the terrific behaviour of our children. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our Kindy families and choir children for making it such a memorable occasion. Please take some time to view the photos taken on the day by clicking here.
Parents and carers, you are invited to join us on Friday, 24 November, for a cuppa and chat in the playground at 2.30 pm. It is a great opportunity to come together and connect.
Parents’ Painting Afternoon – Monday, 11 December
We would also like to invite parents and carers to a fun afternoon of painting. Our new Religious Education Curriculum for Kindy – Year 2 is play-based, and we have some wonderful peg dolls that need painting. No skills are needed; just come along for some afternoon tea and fun. We will meet in the D3 Classroom at 2 pm – 3 pm for painting, chatting, and enjoyment.
Thank you for your participation in fundraising for Catholic Mission recently. Together we raised over $3,000 which is a massive effort.
This money will be directly helping to support those in Timor Leste and I am humbled by the efforts from all.
In the Spirit of discipleship, I thank you.
Frenchs Forest Catholic Parish has a tradition of a special family-oriented Christmas Eve Mass. This year, we would love families to join and be part of the Christmas celebrations. More details will be shared soon.
