The Mass of Thanksgiving for the Year 12 Graduating Class of 2021 was held on Tuesday 7 December at Holy Family Catholic Church in Ingleburn. Fr Sean Cullen graciously accepted the invitation to preside at the Mass and he spoke to the Year 12 girls about moving into their future with confidence and placing their trust in a God who is love.
Many of the Year 12 girls took up roles in the Mass such as readers, processionists, and singers—all of whom made their contribution with grace and reverence. Despite COVID-19 restrictions on congregational singing, the five voice choir of Year 12 girls sang beautifully which added a profound sense of joy to the eucharistic celebration. In particular, the singing of the “Deer’s Cry” brought some to tears and to everyone a moment of peace and uplifted spirits. Arden D. spoke on behalf of the Year Group and her words were crafted beautifully with the key message of gratitude for having been (and forever remaining) part of the St Patrick’s community.
We congratulate and bless the Graduating Class of 2021 and wish them every success in their future endeavours.
