On Sunday, 24 November our school community gathered for our annual celebration of Advent and Christmas. Students from Kindy to Year 12 performed in various choirs along with the string ensemble and a brass quartet. We pondered again the story of Jesus’ birth and reflected on what it means to be a light in the world.
It was wonderful to bring the whole school together for this event and many enjoyed a picnic on the PAC lawn after the service. At this service, the baton is passed from the 2019 Chapel Committee to the new 2020 Committee. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the girls who have served this year and wish them all the very best for their future directions.
Anglican Churches across Toowoomba and all our regional centres will have many opportunities for families to celebrate Christmas together. Rev Paul and I will be in the Balonne Shire 20 - 23 December conducting services in Bollon, Dirranbandi, Thallon and St George. Check their Facebook page for details https://www.facebook.com/anglicanchurchstgeorge/
For those in Toowoomba, each parish has details of their services on the web and social media. I will be at St Luke’s for the 7:00pm Carols Service on 15 December and 1st Holy Communion of Christmas on 24 December beginning with carol singing at 10:30pm.
I wish you all a restful and rejuvenating holiday break and a Holy and Happy Christmas.
Rev’d Sharon Mitchell
