A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You see how it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this.

‘And now I am sending down to you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.’ Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.



Who do you know who has gone away and you don’t see very often?

How do you keep in touch?

Jesus went back to his Father but he is still with us. How do we keep in touch with Jesus?

We show Jesus is with us by the way we live. How will you show others that Jesus is with you this week?

This year we will again support the Vinnies Winter Appeal. If you are able to assist in supporting our least vulnerable it would be greatly appreciated. We are seeking donations of socks, beanies, gloves and scarves.

To help maintain the dignity of those who will receive these items we ask that all items donated be new and in the packages in which they were purchased.  The children can bring these items to school between 23rd May - 21st June. 

This is a great opportunity for the children to spread the Good News and to show that the Church is really alive.
