200 YEARS OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION IN AUSTRALIA
On Monday at the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, our College Captains Alice Kneebone, Sebastian Leaney, and Primary Leaders Marco Didyk and Nikola Radic, represented St Michael’s College at the 200 Years of Catholic Education in Australia Mass at the St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral. Archbishop Patrick O’Regan presided, along with Bishop Karol Kulczycki, Bishop Emeritus Gregory O’Kelly, and Priests from the Adelaide and Port Pirie Diocese. Masses were held in capital cities around Australia to mark this significant milestone. Catholic schools from around the state were in attendance and involved in the readings and music, with Alice Kneebone reading two prayers of the faithful. The significant contribution of Religious and Lay people, over a long period of time was acknowledged, and the contribution of Catholic schools to nurture the faith life of students and staff was acknowledged.
