Our celebration of the Feast of St Dominic took place on Thursday, 4 August. We had our Eucharist in St Dominic’s Church and a Liturgy of the Word in the Latingata Morrom Gym. It was wonderful to gather as a community, albeit in two places and our readings on this day inspired us to continue to seek truth by being messengers of the Good News.
On this special day we also commissioned our FIRE (Friends Igniting Reconciliation in Education) Carriers. Staff and students heard that the story told by Jesus and then Dominic was a new way of caring about all people and all things. This was the same as the spirit ancestors of this land used to do, so the Fire of New Dreaming story belongs to Siena College, just as the Scriptures do.
To be a FIRE Carrier requires strength and courage.
As FIRE Carriers you will lay strong foundations in our Siena community
to build respect, understanding and knowledge of our shared story
that started in this rich land thousands of years ago and continues today.
Stand tall FIRE Carriers
you are the Living Flames that will ignite the Fire of the New Dreaming
of True Justice, Love, Compassion and Hope for the world.
We joyfully invite our parents/guardians to a session that will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about St Dominic and the impact he made on the Church for over eight centuries and even now upon our students, your daughters. No experience necessary! Expect to be surprised.
When: Thursday, 8 September 2022 from 4.30pm to 5.30pm
Where: Heritage Board Room, Siena College
