Mercy Day Mass
On Thursday, 23 September we gathered as a College to celebrate Mercy Day Mass. We offered thanks to the Venerable Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy for their generosity and courage and remembered and celebrated the women who have followed them and all women and men who today continue the mission of Mercy. We also celebrate 3 major milestones:
1. 200 years of Catholic Education in Australia
2. 175 years since Ursula Frayne began Mercy Education in Perth
3. 50 years since the formation of Catholic Education WA
We thank Fr Bill Ousley for saying Mass for us and Sister Joan Buckham RSM who provided a lovely reflection on the readings of the day.
Head of Faith and Mission
