Shrove Tuesday and Caritas Launch

Tuesday 5th March was Shrove Tuesday, the day when Catholics traditionally use up all the delicious fats in their cupboard to make pancakes before entering into a Lenten season of prayer, fasting and giving. On Shrove Tuesday, we launched our Caritas ‘Project Compassion’ Campaign. Our incredibly generous staff donated over 800 pikelets… thank you! Our students purchased countless number of pikelets, raising $772.75… thank you! 

We will continue to campaign for Caritas throughout Lent, so keep your eyes peeled for more awareness and fundraising opportunities.

The Year 6 and Year 12 leaders attended the official Caritas Launch with Archbishop Mark Coleridge at the Cathedral. They were commissioned as Faith and Mission leaders, came first place in their pancake race and shared amazing social justice ideas with students from across the Archdiocese. Well done leaders!
