These daily scripture reflections (originally for the first eight days of August), look at the life of Australia’s first saint through the lens of the daily Gospel stories.

Catholic Teacher: World Humanitarian Day - August 19

09 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

World Humanitarian Day was instituted to remember people who have served in humanitarian missions and especially those who have lost their lives in the course of their service. It is an opportunity to call to mind the people who have gone before us, and especially to honour our martyrs. These include Christians who were killed because of their faith or because they recognised how precious each human being is regardless of race or religion, and dedicated their lives to serve them when they were under threat. They both inspire us and keep us honest.

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.

A ‘Sneaky Jesus song’ may not be a religious tune, but when you listen to the lyrics it could be mistaken for one.


World Refugee Day: Appealing to our generosity

07 Jun 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

World Refugee Day is a time to look outside our own world and to notice people whom persecution and war force to leave their nations.
