Celebrating our Advent Mass is a special way for us to come together as a Catholic community to share the Eucharist and to conclude the academic year, one that has been challenging in many ways.
Social impact is at the heart of what we do. We work hard to create social impact by addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality, improving access to education and healthcare, and protecting the environment. We believe everyone has a role to play in making a difference, and we are committed to doing our part.
I believe our young people can and will be the drivers of this change. We need to harness their passion for sustainability; this was evident through our student’s voice when developing our strategic plan. Our role is to ensure they learn and understand the vital role they can play in sustaining our planet.
Joy doesn’t come from others; it comes from within us. When we are more present, the simple things in life become joyful; the food we eat, the air we breathe, the sounds of nature and our families. The more we get in touch with our true selves, the more joy we will feel. With joy, there is hope. The present is where joy lives.
