All Saints Blackbutt South — Faith Communities of Adamstown, Cardiff and Kotara
On Tuesday and Thursday evenings of this past week (13 & 15 November 2018) around sixty-four of our Yr 3 children received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Though so young and innocent, they now have an understanding of the forgiveness that awaits us all, whenever we bring our human failings to the Lord. As we listened to the Gospel story of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coins it seemed clear that when we lose our way; we are always welcomed back by our loving God. We thank the team who guided the children at each of our three centres. Thanks also to the parents who supported them during this time.
Parents of Yr 4 Children wanting to proceed to Confirmation in May this year, must please note that the (two) essential preparation lessons begin on 18 March at Adamstown and Kotara; and at Cardiff on March 19. Details of lessons, dates and times, have been emailed to all in the state schools and in our three primary schools who prepared for first Reconciliation late in 2018. Families are asked to inform the parish office in advance; which centre your child will attend for his or her lessons. This will assist in planning class numbers. Please see the importance of each child attending a vigil or Sunday Masses throughout the coming weeks, as an essential part of the preparation. Small rituals will involve the children, in order to help them in the learning process. ‘Let the little children come to me; do not turn them away, for it is to such as these, that the kingdom of God belongs.’ Mark 10 : 14.
