05 Feb 2018 | Susie Hii

A freedom grounded in God

01 Nov 2017 | Rob Morris SJ

Today’s society and popular culture bombards us with images of what it is to be free. Common to many of these images is the sense of freedom as autonomy to do what I want to do, even at the exclusion and expense of others. Where does spiritual freedom fit with this view? An answer to these questions can be gleaned from the writings of a sixteenth century saint, Ignatius of Loyola.


A letter to a Year 8 student

01 Nov 2017 | Michael McGirr

Dear Liam, I am writing to thank you for your contribution to our class this year. Most of the time you sat down the back but I could tell you were listening.

Unguarded moments: A Christmas audit

01 Nov 2017 | Ann Rennie

As we approach Christmas and the end of the year it is often a time for thinking about the year that has been, good things and obstacles or heartaches we have had to deal with. It is for many a time for a bit of an audit and New Year’s resolutions, which are made and often broken by the time we get back to work.
