LENT

Most of this term has been spent in the Church season of Lent. The forty-day season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Holy Thursday evening with the celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. It is a time for Christians to commit to strengthening their faith through the three pillars of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

SBC has raised vital funds regarding almsgiving via Project Compassion Boxes and the Easter Raffle. We are most grateful for the generosity of our College families, who supported and donated items for the raffle. All money raised will support projects coordinated by Caritas in Australia and neighbouring countries. We appreciate your support!

Stations of the Cross

We will conclude the term with a prayerful reflection on the Stations of the Cross led by our primary school students (live-streamed via Teams). We remember the path Jesus took on Good Friday. On the way to his death, Jesus showed us how to live and how to die. We cannot rise with Christ unless we walk the path with Him.

“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here but has risen.” [Luke 24:5]

Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB, in his Easter Message 2022, reminds us that the risen Jesus of Easter “…enables us to be the instruments of healing, of hope and of new beginnings which we, our families, our communities, our country and our world so desperately need.”

Happy Easter to all SBC families!

 

Mr Adrian Martino

Head of Faith & Mission

From The Principal – SBC Newsletter Term 1, Week 5
We’ve reached the midway point of Term 1 and it has been five weeks of multiple activities, lessons and as always with more to look forward to at St Brigid’s. Today members of our College staff gathered for professional development whilst our students from K to 12 enjoy a long weekend. The greatest impact on a child’s learning is the teacher, and the continual commitment to building the capacity of staff will ensure that St Brigid’s College offers an elite educational programme for all students. Our priority at the College is to ensure that there are high levels of learning, every lesson, every day. Our students are encouraged to be active learners, ensuring that they are working as hard as our teachers in the classroom.
