Francis Douglas Day

Friday 24 October 2003

The courageous spirit of Father Francis Vernon Douglas has been held up to each generation of students as their model. 2003 marks the 60th anniversary of martyrdom of Father Douglas in the Philippines during World War II. This year the College community commemorated his life with a moving liturgy recalling his life and death. This was followed by our annual Mission Action Day during which we raised in excess of $12,000 to be sent to the Lasallian Missions in Papua New Guinea and outback Australia.
