PENTECOST

Pentecost is known as the ‘birthday’ of the Church. It marks the official beginning of the disciples’ ministry on earth, following Jesus’ ascension. It is a clear reminder that the Holy Spirit has the capacity to bring gifts to life within us that help us to daringly face the challenges life presents.

2020 has been a difficult year for the world at large. What is of the greatest importance, is that each of us draw on the gifts of the Holy Spirit to play our part in making the world a better place. It is as simple and as difficult as that.

Pope Francis challenges us this Pentecost, “We need to be united in facing all these pandemics that are spreading,” said the Pope. “Not only that of the virus, but also those of hunger, war, contempt for life, and indifference to others.”

May all in our Mercy community commit to this as we strive to be people of the Holy Spirit, whose actions are borne out of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and wonder and awe.

VIRTUAL OPEN DAY

In the coming weeks, we will be releasing our videos for Virtual Open Day. Keep your eyes peeled for the release of ten clips, that will be showcased on Facebook, Instagram, and our College website, showcasing the great things happening at St Saviour’s College. Thanks to all the girls who were involved in the filming and to Mrs Linda Creedon and Mrs Wendy Collins for their technical support.

END OF TERM

As the term quickly draws to a close, I would sincerely like to thank all members of our community for their flexibility and resilience over the past months. In these unprecedented times, we have been blessed to have great, adaptable staff who have worked tirelessly across a number of learning platforms; wonderful students who have coped with such enormous change; and supportive parents and families who have worked with their daughters to ensure continuity of learning. We have so missed our boarders who are yet to return. We look forward to their return next term so we can fully experience that great sense of community that is St Saviour’s College.

Blessings for the coming week.

Sharon Collins
