Issue 2 - Chaplain

• "Islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference!"                                                        BACK As I pondered on what I could include in this Lenten newsletter, there were many things that I could have done. I could have reflected on many profound theological truths relating to Easter. I could have highlighted the repentance that we are called to in this season. I could have lamented at the state of our world and the hope that Easter brings to it. These, however, are "head" things. I then came across this report on something that Pope Francis is quoted as saying at the start of Lent: "Dear brothers and sisters, how greatly I desire that all those places where the Church is present, especially our parishes and our communities, may become islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference!" Then it struck me. Christ taught about many things during the course of his short ministry. But crucially .... he also "did." He healed the sick, cured the lame, gave sight to the blind,…

• P&F Family Barbecue and Bush Dance a success                                                                               BACK• New School Council Chairman• Melody the Gratitude Cow• The School Ball P&F Family Barbecue and Bush Dance a successThank you to the many families who attended the recent Family Barbecue and Bush Dance. After the heat of the previous week, the weather was perfect for a twilight event. Children were well entertained either dancing or running around the grounds, enabling parents and grandparents to sit back and enjoy time together. There was plenty of food and the Café was open for light refreshments. It was lovely to chat with current and new families to the School and hear how their children had settled in to the new year. There are several families who have attended this event each year since its inception so it is always interesting to hear how their children are progressing, including siblings who have now left John Wollaston and are forging careers of their own. With Primary staff,…
