From the Director of Mission, Phillip Davis
On Friday 28 July 2017 the Quinn House Mass was celebrated by Fr Adrian Meaney msc from the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart Australia Mission Office in Kensington.
The Readings (1 Cor 12: 4-11 and Matthew 5:13-16) mirrored the theme Strength through Diversity – Let Your Light Shine Before Others (Mt 5:16). Quinn Prefect of Spirituality, Tom Andrianakos, wrote a Reflection connecting this message with life at Waverley College which was read by College Vice-Captain Finn O’Sullivan in Tom’s absence.
Other features of this Mass included the Entry Procession, featuring the new Touchstone Banners, the Gospel Procession, which included symbolic lamps and a ‘bushel basket’ and the Communion Reflection Song Burn Bright by Natalie Grant. I would like to thank the staff and students responsible for the organisation and specific roles during the Mass and especially thank Fr Meaney for availing himself to celebrate the Quinn House Mass.
Our House Masses now begin at 8.20 am which gives parents an opportunity to attend. All parents are most welcome. The next House Mass is the Tevlin House Mass which will take place on Friday 25 August at 8.20am in the College Chapel.
