Feast of the Assumption Mass

 

The Feast of the Assumption Mass is being held in the Gymnasium at 8:50am on Thursday the 15 August. This is a Whole School Mass and all parents and friends of the College are invited to attend. The Mass will be followed by the Mazenod Mission Day.

 

Mazenod Mission Day

On 15 August the College will be running Mazenod Mission Day. A whole school, whole day, fundraising event that embodies the values of St Eugene De Mazenod. The event aims to spark a passion amongst students to reflect on the work done by the Oblate Missions and to foster a sense of giving back to community that has provided them with their educational opportunities. 

 

The funds raised will support Oblate Missions in India and Sri Lanka.  In particular the funds will be directed towards providing education and health support for children and improving the welfare of women.  The focus of Oblate Missions overseas is on education, as it is crucially important in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Morning Mass

Weekday Masses begin at 8:00am in the College Chapel, however, Wednesday morning Masses begin at 8:10am. This Wednesday’s morning Mass is being hosted by Grandin. Everyone from the Mazenod community is extended a warm invitation to attend any of these weekday Masses.

Mazenod College KeepCups

 

The College is proud to launch their very own KeepCups for you to purchase. This initiative was developed by the Sustainability and Environment portfolio of the College and Campus ministry.

As part of promoting KeepCups to the College, the Young Vinnies will give 30% off the price of hot chocolates when a student purchases a hot chocolate with their KeepCup.

($1 instead of the usual $1.50).

Part of the proceeds of the sale will also go to Oblate missionary work in India, Sri Lanka and China.

KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable cup. Purchasing a KeepCup for students is a practical and easy way to reduce waste and carbon emissions.

 

Takeaway coffee cups are lined on the inside with a plastic film, making them notoriously difficult to recycle. And most never even make it there no matter what bin you put them in because recycling streams are usually contaminated by supposedly ‘compostable’ or ‘biodegradable’ cups and lids that never actually compost or biodegrade because most places don’t have the infrastructure to do it.

 

Pope Francis, inspires and challenges us: “Each of us also has a responsibility for others and for the future of our planet”.
