A poignant and memorable Mass was held on Friday 7th December 2018 to give thanks to three staff members leaving Aquinas College at the finish of the 2018 academic year. All three staff members, Chris Inder, Whaea Bernadette Egan and Robyn Parker joined the College in 2003, individually giving 16 years each of service to the forming of Aquinas College. Fr Mark Field celebrated the Mass giving thanks and paying respect to Chris, Bernadette and Robyn in his homily. The Mass was held in front of Te Taumata, it was a wonderful summer’s evening, was well attended by members of our wider community and befitting of such a prestigious occasion. The Mass was followed with kai and an opportunity to chat with guests. We’re hopeful that this was the first of many more outdoor masses incorporating our wharenui.
