Dear Parents and Guardians,
As you are aware our Religious Education lessons this term have been focussing on
Mission. For response to our mission effort, the children and teachers from our Mini Vinnies group would like to lead a response for action in our community. We are going to make up hampers of Christmas goodies for those members in our parish who are sick and as a result are isolated from celebrating masses with the St. Columba’s community.
We are asking that each family provide some small items, which along with the
children’s decorations and card made at school, could be put together to make a small parcel. These donations don’t need to be expensive. For example, you could buy a small box of shortbread biscuits or a mini sized plum pudding.
The parishioners from St Columba’s parish who take communion to the sick will deliver the parcels to these people. We feel strongly that this action will help to strengthen our school and parish links and give us all the wonderful feeling of reaching out to others in need.
Please begin sending these items into your child’s community where there will be a collection box. We would appreciate it if we could have all donations by Friday 8th December.
Thanking you in anticipation!

There are a number of Councils, Committees and Commissions in the Diocese of Ballarat that advise the Bishop and facilitate the work of the Diocese. These entities may be broadly seen as operating in four areas: Pastoral, Stewardship, Education and Welfare.
