Catholic Mission Mass

On Thursday 20th October a group of Year 7 Loreto students (Gabriella Cameron, Veronica Vella, Shayarnee Burns, Erica Scott, Lucy Findlay, Lucy Perosin, Sophie Earle, Erin Longney), accompanied by Ms McCullough and Ms De Mattia, joined other schools in the Broken Bay Diocese to celebrate the annual Catholic Mission Mass at Our Lady of the Rosary Cathedral, Waitara. Catholic Mission Australia serves people in need, acts for justice and creation, and organises child-focused development programs.  In his homily Bishop Comensoli spoke about that if we are seeds of kindness that with love and care we can grow, develop and be people of justice and compassion.

The Mass also recognised the fundraising efforts of the Catholic Mission and Catholic schools in the local area, particularly for the support of the education of children in Cambodia this year. Sister Eulie Desacula and the Daughters of Charity are delivering a revolutionary approach to children’s education in the poorest areas of the capital Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their Mobile Education Learning Centre brings school to children who otherwise could not attend for lack of money or required documents.

While I attended the Mission Mass, I noticed that there was so much peace and happiness between all of the schools. It was a great experience to meet new people and shake new people’s hands.

I had a great time at the Mission Mass at OLOR Cathedral last Thursday. We heard a speaker from the Catholic Mission talk about the work they have been doing in Cambodia, including providing a “tuk tuk”, a mobile classroom that enables underprivileged children to attend school. It was very inspiring to hear the wonderful projects Catholic Mission has been doing to help people in need.
