A number of St Joseph’s Year 5/6 students received the sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday.
Father Blaise Kurek administered the sacrament at the 10.30am mass, attended by a large number of families and parishioners.
A delicious morning tea was shared in the outside covered area after the ceremony.
Because St Joseph’s Catholic School will be holding a Staff Development day at the school on Monday November 12, students will have the day off.
As a matter of interest, due to difficulties in getting enough people who can help with woodcutting, gathering and working for the cause, the Combined Schools Fete looks like being a thing of the past.
Both schools are now thinking outside the square to raise funds.
