Catholic teacher blog: A plebiscite of one’s own

26 Jul 2017 | Alice Priest

The question of marriage and its meaning is presently astir in the public domain, writes Alice Priest. But my own interest has sprung, not from the public debate, but largely from the private chambers of my own heart.

20 Jul 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

On Monday 31 July our school will celebrate the feast day of St Ignatius of Loyola. One thing that always stands out to me is the musical offerings of our students. There is something about music that touches us deep within and sparks within an emotional response.

Catholic Teacher Blog: Sneaky Jesus Song - Eurovision 2017

17 May 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

'Amar Pelos Dois' was performed at Eurovision 2017 and to much surprise won the competition for Portugal; their first ever win! The song was written by Salvador’s sister Luisa who is one of Portugal’s contemporary and greatly acclaimed ‘new generation’ of artists/composers. Salvador offers his all in his performances and when asked about his style he stated, “I sing with all of my heart”. This is certainly apparent when listening to ‘Love for Both’. The critics however did not rate this number and Salvador and Portugal were shock winners in most circles.
