Holy Spirit Students spreading Good News and Peace

Students at Holy Spirit Catholic College, Lakemba decided that they wanted to respond to the acts of violence and hatred that occurred in Christchurch one week ago.

The Senior leaders chose to hand deliver single roses to their Islamic neighbours on Haldon St Lakemba as a sign of peace and solidarity. Each rose had a simple written message attached to it. A quote from the Jesuit Philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin,  attached to it - the quote simply read "Let us raise the power of love".

The students were met with smiles, hugs and comments of genuine gratitude - one passer by stated quite simply "this is what we need! What our world needs"
