The 2017 recipient of the LHC Spirituality in Art Award was Year 11 student, Ella Sendall, for her digital image, Tarni.
Taken during the 2017 Santa Teresa Immersion in July, the image shows a baby girl from the Women’s Centre holding LHC student, Chelsea Groundwater’s hand as she helped to prepare meals for the elders in the community. Ella explains, “The Arrente people have found balance between their ancient spirituality and Catholicism. The success of Santa Teresa’s community lies in the acknowledgement of the past, whilst embracing the future. Tarni
represents a place where racism and bigotry cannot exist whilst we recognise, accept and celebrate the differences in all humans.”
