Last Friday our Secondary Students and members of our community came together at St Paul’s Cathedral for our 2023 Cathedral Service with the theme ‘Blessings’.
Our students provided music from a mixture of traditional and contemporary pieces, including ‘Look at the World’ by John Rutter to Million Little Miracles, a song written in 2021. Our choirs and orchestra shone through their music, as we offered a service of praise for all the blessings we have and we have to share.
Our Year 12 Leaders and our Faith Captains led us through our service.
Our guest preacher was the Rev Tim Costello, AO, who wove a brilliant reflection based on the Parable of the Good Samaritan and our school motto, factis non verbis, ‘deeds not words’. His message spoke well to students, staff and community members and challenged us to think of how we respond to people we meet on the road of life. He spoke of the message of Jesus being, at its heart, an ethical perspective from the view of the vulnerable. And his challenge to everyone present was profound.
