Dear Holy Cross College Community
A tradition, which has come down from the apostolic ages, tells us that the great mystery of the Incarnation was achieved on the twenty-fifth day of March. It was at the hour of midnight, when the most holy Virgin was alone and absorbed in prayer, that the Archangel Gabriel appeared before her, and asked her, in the name of the blessed Trinity, to consent to become the Mother of God. We consider the angel Gabriel’s greeting: ‘Greetings, O favoured one! The Lord is with you.’ We see Mary perplexed, wondering what this means. We hear the angel announce that God’s favour rests on her as the mother of Jesus. We notice that Mary is troubled. Gabriel explains the startling reality: ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you … the child to be born will be … called Son of God.’ Mary considers her response. ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord.’
Thank you for attending these important opportunities for conversation in relation to your child’s progress. Parents are the prime educators, and it is essential we work together in partnership in the best interests of our students. I hope you found the face-to-face contact worthwhile. Learning Conversations for our Middle School will take place next term.
We have three staff members leaving us at the end of the term:
Mrs Joanne Betti – Social Worker
Mrs Lidia Nuich – Admin Assistant
Mrs Maria Bochrinis – Finance Officer
We thank Jo, Lidia and Maria for their great contribution to HCC. We wish them the very best on their new career pathways.
