In an effort to keep the Catholic and Lasallian ethos present in our minds and hearts during the COVID-19 times, the College was excited to live stream a Mass service from the Secondary Campus Chapel. The St Michael's College Primary and Secondary Campuses celebrated the feast of our founder, St John Baptist de La Salle by viewing the Mass via screen projection in their Pastoral classes, while ten staff and students gathered in the College Chapel with Fr Paul McCormack MSC to facilitate the Mass. Students and staff engaged in singing and responses in their classes.
This year was a very different experience from what the College is accustomed. Both Campuses would usually celebrate the Mass in the Secondary Campus Founders Hall, with approximately 1800 students and staff gathering together, however, this experience was well worth the planning and technical preparation to continue our important traditions in a different format.
