On Friday 16th March (Week 6) the College community will gather for Eucharist and a day of activities to celebrate the Feast Day of our patron, St Joseph. Joseph’s life was interesting and certainly challenging. We know Joseph was a compassionate and caring man. He was a man of faith, obedient to whatever God asked of him without knowing the outcome. Joseph respected God. He followed God's commands faithfully. Joseph is the patron of fathers, carpenters and social justice.

On Sunday 26th November we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King. The Feast of Christ the King is, as Catholic feasts go, a relatively recent one. It was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925, to remind Catholics (and the world generally) that Jesus Christ is Lord of the Universe, both as God and as Man. This feast also draws to a close the Church year.

On Tuesday 8th August, our school community will be celebrating the Feast of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop with a celebration of the Eucharist....As celebrations of this important event occur in our schools and churches it is timely to remember, not only Mary, but the positive impact that she and her sisters have made to Catholic education in Australia. We reflect particularly on the significant contribution of the Sisters of St Joseph to our own college as we celebrate our 50 years
