July 31st 2015
Today we lead a wonderful parish Mass, the feast day of St Ignatius. The introduction was read by Eden Robertson Room 9. The Sorrow Prayers were led by Astyn Selave-Wolfgramm- Room 4, Laila ‘Ofama’oni- Room 5, Sebastian Dunn- Room 10. Wow what an amazing job Xavier Jennings- Sio from Room 5, did with the long reading from Leviticus. He read it word perfect from the weekday lectionary. Well done Xavier. The psalm was read by Skyllah Sagatea-Futialo- Room 4 and Psalms Solomon- Vaotuua- Room 10. In his homily, Fr Iosefa mentioned how good it was of Room 4 to visit them in the parish office and how much he enjoyed their visit. This coincides with our Religious Education topic “Church”, knowing our parish and who our parish priest and parish workers are. The prayers of the faithful were led by Teresa Mayerhofler- Room 9, Thomas Brighouse- Room 4, Tori Ah Kuoi- Room 5, Francis Bautista -Room 10, Brooklyn Tuala- Room 9, Sepa Mafi- Room 4 and Nathan Ybanez- Room 9. In the Offertory procession were Samantha Ellis- Room 4, CJ Vili- Room 5 and Justin Kautai- Room 10. Gemma Pouesi from Room 10 read the reflection after communion, the prayer of generosity written by St Ignatius. Thank you to Juana Pahulu and Savannah Tuiafitu who led our music and Aidan Amoa who was our Altar server. Thank you to the Arohanui syndicate children and teachers for making this a memorable occasion. Blessed weekend to us all.
