Chaplain’s Notes

Brother Denis Loft Reconnects With Mark’s House

Brother Denis Loft, a former student and teacher at De La Salle, rounded off his brief spell in Melbourne with a visit to the Kinnoull Campus to address St Mark’s House, of which he was a member. He presented the Year 10, 11 and 12 students with an in-depth account of conditions in South Sudan, the newest country in our world. The extreme poverty and harsh living conditions continue and stand in stark contrast to the comfort of life in Australia. Brother Denis’ account of life in South Sudan threw open a challenge to the students who can share their own wealth and effort in supporting these communities.

Year 8 Liturgies Continue

Each Tuesday morning a group of Year 8 students lead the College community in prayer to start the day. On Tuesday 6 March, Year 8 Hegarty helped us reflect on forgiveness and how we treat the people we encounter in our lives. Parents who are dropping their son/s at school are most welcome to join us in the Tiverton Chapel for an 8:15 am start. The Chapel is located near the library. We would love to see you there! Please note that due to new Child Safety laws all visitors to the College must sign in at Reception first.
