Colin House Mass 2024

On Tuesday 20th February we were joined by Fr Michael McLean from St Mark’s Parish Drummoyne to celebrate the Colin House Mass.

Colin House co-Captains Eliza and Maddison spoke of our patron Jean-Claude Colin and how his work has influenced our students at MSCW. As a house, we are influenced by our Colin motto, ‘Unity within diversity’. This encourages the celebration of each individual through our unique differences that create harmony between each of us. Eliza and Maddison shared the following words of advice with those at the House Mass –  Continue to have courage, use your gifts, empower your sisters and keep living by the values of our motto. We encourage you to immerse yourself in the beliefs of our house in order to continue to bring out the best in each other by uniting and celebrating our diversity.

We instil this motto of ‘Unity within Diversity’ on a daily basis with the students at MSCW. 

It was a wonderful experience for many students to display their diverse talents such as singing, playing the piano or taking part in readings throughout the service. We were also thrilled to have many family members involved in the Mass as well – Thank you to the parents for engaging in this opportunity. Mrs Chappell and a group of Colin students worked together to ensure the supper provided afterwards was an enjoyable experience and a great way for students, families and staff to celebrate and acknowledge the wonderful diversity within our Colin students.
