Commencement Mass

On Tuesday 11th February, the College community gathered in the Gym for the Commencement Mass and Investiture of College Prefects.

The principal celebrant for the Eucharist was Father Tom Lawn, Parish Priest of St. Joseph's, New Plymouth, and an old boy of Francis Douglas. He was assisted by Father Joe O'Riordan, College Chaplain and a number of priests from the surrounding parishes.

We were also pleased to welcome to our celebration Mrs Diane Kawana, principal of Sacred Heart Girls' College, and Sacred Heart Prefects, together with the parents and families of our Leaders.

During our Liturgy, we had the Commissioning of our Leaders' and the induction and blessing of Patrick Bradford, Anthony Churches, Paul Gibbins, Aaron Waite, Cameron Walsh, Matthew Smith, Luke Herlihy and Cory Avison as Eucharistic Ministers for 2003.
