Vol. 7, Ed.23 22nd August 2019 

From the Acting Principal

 

We look forward to welcoming back College Principal Mr Damian Messer next week following his period of leave. I can vouch that the purpose of the leave; renewal and refreshment, has most certainly worked. My personal thanks to all members of staff for their support in Mr Messer’s absence.

Feast of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop

On Wednesday of this week we acknowledged the Feast of Mary MacKillop, also known as Saint Mary of the Cross, the founder of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, who are characterised by an emphasis on welfare and education for the poor, particularly in country areas. The Sisters affirm the growing recognition that, right throughout the world, God is gracing many with the spirit of Mary MacKillop. This is evidenced by so many taking up her call to “never see a need without doing something about it”.

I would like to particularly thank Mrs Chambers of the Junior School for supporting staff and the boys in understanding the significance of this feast day.

With St Mary in mind we offer the following blessing on us all:

With the bounty of the fig tree and the graciousness of the vines, with the yield of the olive and the abundance of the apple harvest, with the industry of the honey bees and the fatness of the cattle, with the sturdiness of the mountain and the agility of the gazelle, with the responsiveness of Mary and her creative imagination - bless us, live graciously with us, and hold us in your heart, Living God. Amen
