An annual event for the College is our whole school Mass in honour of our Patron Saint’s Feast Day – St Joseph the Worker Feast Day.  May the First or “May Day” has long been dedicated as a special day for labour and working people around the world. The feast of St Joseph the Worker was established by Pope Pius XII in 1955 to Christianise labour and give all workers a model and a protector.

This is the day we bring together the role models of St Joseph, Jesus and Catherine McAuley, as people who stood for hard work, hospitality and justice in their lives. We are all being called to work for justice and to use our talents to make a difference in our world.  Fr James Kerr celebrated our Mass reminding us of the importance of hard work in our everyday lives and never forget the importance of striving for excellence in all that we do.

Our Feast Day Mass on Wednesday May 1 was the start of two days of celebration for the College, with our Feast Day activities and Student Concert ‘Carpenter’s Classic’ on Thursday.   Students and staff alike enjoyed both days and gave thanks to God for our wonderful role model in St Joseph.
