Praise & Worship Celebration

On Thursday, 21 July, Tayla (Yr 12) and Carys (Yr 6) represented SBC at the opening celebration for the Catholic Performing Arts Festival. The celebration, held at St Mary’s Cathedral, was led by the Very Rev Father Vincent Glynn – Episcopal Vicar for Education and Faith Formation. We prayed for all our students involved in the Catholic Performing Arts Festival this term – may they enjoy sharing their God given gifts and talents with each other.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Our Year 3 students are currently preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time during this term. Parents and students have had the opportunity to attend workshops run by 24/7 Youth Ministry.

Sleepout for Mercy Works

Next Thursday, 4 August students will have the opportunity to experience the realities and complex issues of homelessness on a personal level by ‘sleeping rough’ for a night. This experience will be conducted in conjunction with Mazenod College staff and students at Mazenod College.

Sponsorship money raised from the evening will support Mercy Works.

The focus for Fundraising – Term 3

Our fundraising for Term 3 will support the work of Mercy Works.

Mercy Works is the development arm of the Australian and Papua New Guinean Sisters of Mercy.

Their mission is inspired by Catherine McAuley’s vision of change for the poor and disadvantaged.

Mercy Works are financed by donations from the four Australian congregations of the Sisters of Mercy, charitable trusts & foundations, various organisations & groups and individuals.


Thank you.

Mr Adrian Martino

Head of Faith and Mission
