Last Friday the College held our House Charity Day. As a new concept for 2019, all eight houses held their House Charity Day on the one day. Together this brought awareness of the work specific charities and organisations undertake in their vision and mission of the Christian call to outreach to others.
Students were encouraged to pray for and reflect upon our need to extend compassion, empathy, generosity and love without judgement. In our call to be disciples in today’s world, imitating Christ in our actions and words by reaching out to others in a most meaningful context.
The following quote sums up the theme of our House Charity Day:
“We must be constantly reminded of the privileges we have, and others don’t, in order to be moved to gratitude.”
The following is a list of our house aligned charities and organisations that have now been formed and continue to develop and grow within the life of the college:
In pastoral period, houses undertook a variety of activities to highlight and promote the work of their charities. Guest speakers, assemblies, prayers, games and activities, raffles and competitions were all held to bring a spirited pastoral period. Whilst fun was being had, the intention of the day was not forgotten.
We extend our sincerest thanks to our students and families for their wonderful generosity in supporting our House Charity Day. As a College community, we must be constantly reminded of the privileges we have, and others don’t- not just on one day- but that we continue to pray for God’s mercy and compassion for those most in need.
We pray for the dignity of all people.
That through our need to recognise that all human life is a priceless gift from you,
that we may be moved to reach out and serve those who we are called to be united with in love,
seeing the face of Christ in everyone in all circumstances of life.
