This week we celebrated the Feast of Mary, Our Lady Help of Christians. The Feast Day to Mary Help of Christians has been celebrated in Australia since 1844. Catholic Australia remained faithful to Mary and was the first nation to choose her under the title Help of Christians, as principal Patroness. Australia became the first country to have a mother cathedral under the same title. We say this prayer to Mary so that she will guide us on this special day.
Almighty God, deepen in our hearts
our love of Mary Help of Christians.
Through her prayers and under her protection,
may the light of Christ shine over our land.
May Australia be granted harmony, justice and peace.
Grant wisdom to our leaders and integrity to our citizens.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.
We are excited to welcome parents and carers back into our school and class masses.

We all remember the devastating impact of the floods in the Lismore region earlier this year.
As a way to support Catholic schools in the Lismore diocese St Mary's are running a Book Club Fundraiser.
Simply order a book for the fundraiser as part of your Book Club order and let your class teacher know which book/s is for donation. When the orders arrive we will compile the donations and organise shipping to Lismore to restore books in their school libraries.
As a bonus part of this fundraiser, the points generated by the book you purchase will go to a fund that supports your child’s class to purchase new books.
Your support will be invaluable!
Mrs Donna Spillman, our school counsellor for this year, is continuing to meet with students via Zoom every Wednesday.
Please follow this link for detailed information on the service provided to our families by Catholic Care.
If you would like to make a confidential appointment for your child please contact the school office if your child is already registered. If you wish to register your child to see the counsellor please contact Mr Nielsen first and then an complete online form at this link:
