Opening Mass

Rachel Lechmere - Thursday, February 16, 2012

The Opening College Mass was celebrated on Wednesday 15 February on a hot night in the Tenison Woods Centre.  The Mass was celebrated by Bishop Vincent Long who spoke in his homily of the importance of living our lives based on the values of the Gospel, and not the values of the world. The theme for the Mass was “Be Still and Know that I am God” taken from Psalm 46.  This theme invites all of us into deeper prayerful reflection of God’s presence within and around us.

Julian Tenison Woods Pilgrimage in Tasmania

Chris O'Malley - Monday, September 05, 2011
On August 3 two of our student leaders, James Daly and Judith Ferguson together with Mrs Sarpi, attended the Julian Tenison Woods Pilgrimage in Tasmania along with staff and students from other Melbourne AJASS schools. They sailed on the "Spirit of Tasmania".

Upon arriving in Devonport they were greeted by the Principal of Sacred Heart College and the Sisters of St Joseph who would journey with them to MacKillop Hill in Forth, just outside of Devonport. On Friday August 5 the students and staff took part in the Colloquium at the Josephite History and Mission Centre in New Town, Hobart. Throughout the Colloquium they discovered how important Fr. Julian Tenison Woods was and particularly the significant part he had to play in the Mary MacKillop story. Fr Julian Tenison Woods was also a scientist, arborist, environmentalist and a poet.

The Josephite Sisters of Hobart (Black Joeys) were delighted that Fr Julian Tenison Woods features so prominently at our own MacKillop College. He was a magnanimous, intelligent and spiritual man who was ahead of his times according to the ‘ Joeys’, and they were thrilled that our accelerated learning Tenison Woods program was named after him.

The St Andrew’s Theatre Company is proud to announce its 2011 show, “GODSPELL”. This year we have over 50 young people aged between 13 – 30, coming together every Monday and Wednesday evening at the parish centre to put on what will no doubt be a fantastic show for our parish community. The theatre company was started three years ago as a youth group that truly brings together current MacKillop students, past students and other likeminded youth from the parish of St Andrew’s. If there are any students who would like to be involved in this years show then they can call 9741 4144 to find out more details or speak to Mr O’Malley. Everyone is most welcome.

40 Hour Famine

Chris O'Malley - Wednesday, August 31, 2011

On the 20th - 22nd  August, 80 MacKillop staff and students once again participated in the World Vision 40hr famine. This was a wonderful way for people to experience what it is like to really go without and by participating in this, well deserved money was raised to support those who a genuinely in need both here in Australia and abroad. In the past year, over 100 million people have been affected by a food crisis and there are now over 900 million chronically hungry people around the world, and approximately 1.4 billion living in extreme poverty. By participating in the 40hr, we as a community can make a difference to this world crisis. I will keep you posted as to our overall total for 2011.

Soup Van and Refugee Tutoring

Chris O'Malley - Wednesday, August 31, 2011
A special thanks must go to all our staff and students who every week give of their time so generously to support the ongoing commitment to the Matthew Talbot Soup Van in Footscray on a Thursday evening and the Karen Refugee Tutoring at St Thomas Anglican Church on Monday afternoons. Every week we have around 20 staff and students who support these and without your help they would not be able to happen. Thank you for your continued support and generosity of time.
