Term 1 Week 8 - Friday 17th March 2023
From our Principal
The St Mary’s community extends our prayers and heartfelt sympathies on the recent passing of former school captain Sophia Van Opstal. Our thoughts are with Sophia’s family and the Marian College community.
This morning, the staff from Marian and St Mary’s gathered in prayer -
Go forth, Christian soul, from this world
God forth Christian soul
in the name of God, who created you,
in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God,
who suffered for you,
in the name of the Holy Spirit,
who makes you holy.
Go forth, faithful Christian!
May you live in peace.
May your home be with God in heaven,
with Mary, the Mother of Jesus,
with Joseph, and Brigid
and your dear father and brother
and all the saints
May Mary and Brigid and all the saints
come to meet you as you go forth from this life.…
May you see God face to face.
