GRANDPARENTS' MASS

A very special part of family, are the grandparents and on Thursday 17 March the Year 7 students wanted to show them just how special they are.

 

All Year 7 students had the opportunity to invite their grandparents to attend the Year 7 Grandparents' Mass and Morning Tea and to visit their grandchild’s new secondary school. The 110 grandparents who attended were greeted by their grandchild at the front gate and they were escorted to the St John Baptist de La Salle Chapel for Mass celebrated by Fr Richard Sadowskis SDS, La Salle College Chaplain.

 

Within Fr Richard’s homily, he had asked each student to turn to their grandparents and tell them they loved them.   At the conclusion of his Homily the Grandparents Day Song was sung. 

 

Participating in the Mass service as readers were Thomas Cathcart, Caoimhe Incerti, Ryan Lennox-Bradley, Chynna Martins, Jessica Scarfone, Madeline Scott and Zac Wareing.   Vincent Versaci and his Nonna took up the offertory.

 

“The Year 7 students were so proud to have their grandparents come and see the College and it was very evident that their grandparents are very special people in the Year 7s’ lives.  To quote Fr Richard's song: “How wonderful it is to know you, to learn from your experience. So thank you, Grandma. Thank you, Grandpa. I’m so very glad you’re in my life”. [GRANDPARENT’S DAY SONG].”

Ms Taryn Mohen, Year 7 Coordinator.

 

At the conclusion of the Mass, a personal tour was conducted by the Year 7 students, which concluded at C Street Café where Ms Annie Bui and the Certificate III in Hospitality students prepared the delicious array of morning tea.

 

“We recently attended the Grandparents Mass and morning tea at the College and it was a wonderful occasion.  The mass was a lovely celebration of thanks for Grandparents. The morning tea after was sumptuous to say the least and we were well catered for and spoilt by the college hospitality students and staff. It was a wonderful morning, thoroughly enjoyed by all and sincere thanks to Taryn Mohen for her excellent organisation of the morning. It was great to enjoy a Mass and morning tea with our grandchildren attending La Salle for the first time.” Kevin (Alumni Member) and Margaret Smith
