Blessing of Pets Service
This Sunday, we welcome all creatures great and small to the Glennie Chapel Lawn as we celebrate St Francis Day with our Annual Pet Blessing Service. For the not so sociable pets and for those a little too far afield to bring in, bring a photo for an at arm’s length blessing. We will say prayers and sing a few songs together before blessing each of the animals. The service begins at 9:30am and will be followed by a bring and share morning tea on the Lawn (a picnic blanket to sit on would be advisable). We have been praying a lot for rain, so in the event of wet weather, we will move to the Blue Court in the Junior Years.
On Sunday, 20 October, St Luke’s Church celebrates its patronal festival with a special service at 10:00am. All members of the Glennie community are welcome to join in this celebration. The Glennie Choral Group will add to the worship with their beautiful voices and the boarding community will be in attendance.
Our Carols Service this year will be a combined affair for Kindy to Year 12 students and families. The service is on Sunday, 24 November in the Clive Berghofer Sports Centre starting at 4:30pm and will be followed by a BYO picnic on the PAC lawn. More details will be provided soon.
A Prayer of Blessing from St Therese of Lisieux as we begin this new term:
May today there be peace within you.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
~ Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
