Welcome to St Joseph's Parish School, Atherton
St Joseph’s Parish School, catering for boys and girls from Prep to Year 7, is an integral part of the Cairns Diocese and the Atherton Catholic Parish. Located approximately one hour’s drive from Cairns, Atherton sits within the heart of the naturally beautiful and agriculturally rich Atherton Tablelands. Despite its many changes over the years, St Joseph’s Parish School has remained committed to providing its students with a well-balanced and relevant education and curriculum.

ASH WEDNESDAY LITURGY
Our Ash Wednesday liturgy will be held tomorrow the 5th of March at 10.00 am.
Everyone is most welcome to attend. (Remember this is only a
liturgy). Following the Ash Wednesday Liturgy, each child will be given a Project Compassion box to take home so they
can give generously this Lent. Your donations allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and
Development, to work with communities to reduce poverty and hunger around the world.
SHROVE TUESDAY/ PANCAKE DAY
On 4th March we shared pancakes and reflected on its
significance to the season of Lent. I would like to
thank a wonderful group of mums who gave up their
time to make the pancakes. Many thanks to all
families who purchased pancakes! The money will
be forwarded to Caritas for Project Compassion.
Thanks everyone for your fantastic support!

Each year, Atherton Catholic Parish conducts parish-based sacramental programs for Catholic Students. The programs are fully supported by the school. There will be two programs running this year.
In Term 1 & 2, students in Year 4 or older (This will only include those students who joined the program last year who received the sacrament of Penance) will prepare for Confirmation and Eucharist. The Confirmation is scheduled for June 13th, with the date for Eucharist on June 22nd.
In Term 3, students usually in Year 3 will prepare for the sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation/Confession). These children will then be eligible to receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation next year.
If your child is new to the school and you need any further information about these programs, please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
