Where can I get an enrolment form?

Enrolment forms are available from your parish, and in some cases from the website of your parish. Use the drop down box at:

Enrolment forms from some parishes may also be found on the College website at this link.

What do I need to take to enrolment?

Relevant earlier certificates - eg Baptism, Reconciliation etc.

Do I need to enrol my child for classes in the parish?

Children attending Catholic schools receive instruction on the Sacraments through the RE program, and are given a certificate of completion. Most parishes will request to see this certificate. In addition, some parishes request that students preparing for Sacraments (including students from Catholic schools) attend parish classes or retreats. Check with your own parish for further details.

I would like some further information; who can I ask?

"The leprosy left him and he was cured... " (Mark 1:40-45)

The following is taken from Fr Richard Leonard's homily on this Sunday's gospel and is printed here, with kind permission. Fr Richard Leonard SJ is the author of Preaching to the Converted, Paulist Press, New York, 2006

Sometimes translators of the Bible get it wrong for all the best reasons. We are used to hearing in today's Gospel that Jesus was 'filled with pity' when he encountered the leper, but the Greek word Mark uses is more accurately translated 'anger', not 'pity'. With the exception of the cleansing of the temple in John's Gospel, generations of translators found it hard to imagine Jesus angry. Jesus' anger, however, provides a wonderful insight into him, and a strong challenge to us.

Anger tells us that something is wrong. It is an important and valuable emotion. Anger is value-neutral. It's what we do with it that defines its effect in our lives. Some of us sit on it and stew. Others gain energy from their anger to right the wrong.

People who had any type of skin disease in first century Palestine were called lepers. They were treated shamefully. They had to live outside the villages and towns, call out 'unclean, unclean' when they came near others, could never attend the temple and were considered cursed by God and so excluded from the Chosen People. No wonder Jesus was angry when he encountered a man with leprosy. Here he also confronts a social class system that robbed this man of his human dignity and religious laws that robbed him of hope.

There are two details in this story that are especially important. The man with leprosy feels comfortable enough to go straight up to Jesus, to put his case, and ask for healing. We are told that Jesus touched him. Social and religious laws were being broken in this encounter. But Jesus' healing of the man isn't just about challenging social laws and taboos. Jesus tells the man to fulfil his religious obligations so that he can attend the temple again and rejoin the community. Jesus was interested in converting all those he met to the higher laws of love and compassion.

We are challenged this Sunday to trust our anger. This is not only about fighting for our rights when we have been wronged, but more so, it's fighting for the dignity and rights of others. It can take many forms: taking the life of those yet to be born, or who are near natural death, fighting for future generations by calling for a just care of the earth. And it can be about standing up for those people in our home, parish, workplace, neighbourhood, country and world who are treated shamefully, excluded, derided, or declared unclean.

Why should we bother? Because this Sunday Christ comes to us, again, and declares that despite what we might think about ourselves, or what we have been told, there is nothing in us which cannot be healed or is beyond hope. ©


Every Friday during term time, members of the College Community gather in prayer, usually to celebrate the Eucharist together. All parents, students and friends as well as staff are invited. If you are new to the school, please accept our warm invitation. It is a 'user-friendly' joyous Mass. As Lent commences on Wednesday, some people consider attending the six Friday Masses of Lent a part of their spiritual journey for this season. If you have any questions, please contact:

Where: Chapel
Time: 8:00am - 8:30am
When: Fridays in term time
