Sr Mary Roche honoured during Catholic Education Week - 06 August 2014

As part of a special Catholic Education Week (CEW) Assembly on Thursday 31 July, the College recognised one of its very own Good Samaritan Sisters, Sr Mary Roche who was recently nominated for a Spirit of Catholic Education Award.

The awards, presented annually in conjunction with CEW, recognise individuals making an outstanding contribution to Catholic education in Queensland.

This year, over 100 nominations were received from across the state, representing all spheres of Catholic education communities, including clergy, staff, parents and volunteers.

A complete list of the nominees is available on the Catholic Education Week website.

The assembly also included the unveiling of the third in a series of eight paintings of LHC House Patrons as part of the College centenary project.

College Principal Ms Robyn Anderson said that the latest painting, of Sr Mary Roche, captured her spirit wonderfully.

“It was fitting that her portrait was presented this year as the epitome of [the CEW 2014 theme] ‘living life in all its fullness’,” she said.

Ms Anderson said that the nomination application for the Spirit of Catholic Education Award summed up perfectly how the Lourdes Hill community felt about Sr Mary Roche.

“Her daily presence in our lives is a great gift to each one of us at LHC,” she said.

“She is much loved and I think Carmen Mitchell’s painting brings Sr Mary’s beautiful essence to life.

“We will treasure it along with the portraits of Sr Leonie and Aunty Joan.”
