Weekly Gospel Reflections
The Catholic Parish of Christchurch North have created a youtube channel where they send out a short reflection on the Gospel reading each week. This could be great to watch with your family, especially in this time where it may be harder to go out and celebrate mass in your community. Here is the link to the youtube channel: Catholic Parish of Christchurch North

Prayer for Ukraine this Friday
The bishops are asking NZ Catholics to support everyone caught in the Ukraine war by going to your local parish church at a time to suit you next Friday to pray the Rosary. This coincides with Pope Francis consecrating Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary the same day. Bishop Steve (Bishop of Auckland and NZCBC Secretary) says: “All over Ukraine, people are having to flee their homes because of the war. Leaving our homes here to go to our local church to pray on this special day would very much be showing solidarity to the people having to leave their homes in Ukraine.”

St Anne’s School will be participating in this special day of prayer through each class praying a rosary for peace throughout the day.
