The Season of Lent

During Lent, Catholics are called to practice penance by performing any one of the following:

Prayer – for example Mass attendance, family prayer, a visit to a Church or a Chapel, reading the Bible, making the Stations of the Cross, praying the Rosary.

Self denial – for example not eating meat, not eating sweets or dessert, giving up entertainment to spend time with family, limiting food and drink so as to give to the poor of one’s own country.

Helping others – for example special attention to someone who is poor, sick, elderly, lonely or overburdened.What will your Lenten journey involve?A reminder that in support of our sisters who traditionally abstain from meat on Fridays in Lent, no meat products will be sold at the College canteen on these days.

Ash Wednesday Prayer Service 2021

At the Ash Wednesday Prayer Service, each House launched Project Compassion.  Project Compassion brings thousands of Australians together in solidarity with the world’s poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity. Throughout Lent, students are invited to contribute to their Tutor Room’s Project Compassion boxes. Thank you to the House Liturgy Captains – Arielle, Bianca, Orla, Orlaith, Olivia and Claire supported by the House Captains and the House Coordinators for leading the Ash Wednesday Prayer Service.
