|Term 1 ends with moving liturgy - 11 April 2014|
Staff and students gathered in the Good Samaritan Centre for a liturgy to conclude the term and to focus on the upcoming central Christian Feast, Easter.
From the GSC, participants processed in solemn silence down the riverside boardwalk, contemplating the Stations of the Cross that line this route, and then gathering in the new Stella Sports Centre.
The focus of the liturgy was to link elements of the story of the Passion of Jesus with the work of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan Sisters around the world. Each House showed their solidarity with the work of the Sisters by donning a coloured headband, reminiscent of the crown of thorns. As the story was told and links were made to the contemporary world, the congregation took on an increasingly colourful appearance.
Finally, to reflect the story of transformation from death to life that underpins the Easter message, the bare cross that had stood at the centre of the prayer space was covered in colourful paper butterflies, as staff and students renewed their commitment to being people of hope.
The liturgy concluded with the announcement that, for the third year in a row, the College community would make a donation to Caritas of $20,000 following an incredible commitment to Project Compassion in Term 1.
As a school with a mission to inspire young women to create a better world, our Easter Liturgy was the perfect way to send the community into the holidays with a clear vision of hope and confidence. We wish all our readers a happy and holy Easter. May the peace of the Risen Christ be with you.
