MMD Thank You

 

Thank you to all the families who contributed to Mazenod Mission Day. In the next couple of weeks, I will release the final fundraising total. We still have some donation envelopes to come in to the office. If we can have these returned no later than Tuesday 27 August that would be wonderful.

Reflection:

Our Focus on Faith and Compassion

“Every child, every person needs to know that they are a source of joy; every child, every person, needs to be celebrated. Only when all of our weaknesses are accepted as part of our humanity can our negative, broken self-images be transformed.”

- Jean Vanier, Becoming Human

 
 

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).

Buy a KeepCup Now

 

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”.
