Bishop Edward's visit to Saint Igantius College

Posted 17-Feb-2017

Bishop Mark Edwards’ Visit – 14 February 2017

We had a special visit on Tuesday from our local Bishop, Bishop Mark Edwards OMI DD. In planning his visit Bishop Edwards indicated his aim was to meet ‘all of us’ and throughout the day he was able to visit about ten classes. He took great delight in meeting and talking with many, many students. He also had occasion to meet a large number of staff - both formally and informally.

Further to this Bishop Mark celebrated Mass with the theme of mercy for 130 staff and students, through this Mass he also concluded our celebrations of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. His homily for those at Mass was to focus on one thing that might offer mercy to another and then act upon it. He guided us in saying “Just as Jesus offered mercy, we also should reach out to those around us; especially those who are removed from us. Looking out for those who we may not know well or may have difficulties with brings us closer to God.”

After Mass, he met with one of our Year 11 Religion and Society classes, who had prepared questions for him about their studies and about his own life and work. It was wonderful to have an ‘expert’ with us and the students were touched by his honest and insightful responses.

He was so very kind to all he met and during his visit offered us an example of the good shepherd. It was a wonderful experience for us at Saint Ignatius and we are very fortunate that the Bishop was able to visit so soon after his instillation as Auxiliary Bishop for our region.
