Over this past month since I have been back at work, we’ve had the Plenary Council. It is now in the next stage of reflecting on all the work that has happened during the sessions.
Some of our delegates share their experience of the Plenary Council.
After a very quiet year and a half thanks to covid, the Ignite Youth team, a Catholic Youth ministry movement with a big vision for renewal in the Church, were ready to shake things up! Ignite Conference is usually an annual event taking place every September school holidays, but it had a break last year due to covid. That made the conference this year extra special.
Fr Marcel has been a breath of fresh air to our community. The North Rocky community is a better place as a result of the time he has spent here, in fact the Rockhampton Diocese is a better place for his time here. His humble missionary spirit leaves an indelible mark on our community and will live on in our community for a long time to come.
Following the coming together of St Patrick’s College and Mercy College in Mackay this year, the newly formed Years 7-12 secondary school has been officially named by Bishop Michael McCarthy as St Patrick’s College, with the junior campus to be known as Mercy Campus.
Holy Spirit College Mackay celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. Students and staff gathered on Tuesday 12 October to commemorate this special occasion with the placing of items in a time capsule, a sausage sizzle, a whole-of-school drone photograph and fun carnival activities all part of the day’s events.
