Our College Theme for 2023 comes from Luke’s account of the Parable of the Good Samaritan, where the lawyer asks Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ after declaring he follows the Laws of Moses.
So as we begin our academic year once more, how might OLMC be a place of hospitality, compassion, justice, courage and joy for others?
So we pray…
God of Mercy and Blessing
Support and strengthen us as we begin this new school year,
As we live your love and action in our world.
May our place be one of welcome, hospitality, justice and compassion for all we encounter.
We make this prayer through Christ, our Lord.
As the OLMC Faith community we will celebrate God’s love for us and presence in our world with the following Masses and Liturgies:
- Thursday 16 February at 6:30pm
