Ash Wednesday

Today as a school community we celebrate Ash Wednesday which is the first day of the season of Lent. Throughout the morning, blessed ashes were marked on the foreheads of our students and staff in the form of a cross. The smudge mark made by the ashes is a visible reminder of the commitment we enter into during Lent and of the forgiveness and strength which is the gift of Jesus to each of us.

St Vincent de Paul Door Knock Appeal

Merici College students participated in the St Vincent de Paul Doorknock Appeal on 15th February. 30 students went out into Ainslie and Campbell to raise money for the support services the St Vincent de Paul Society provides to the Canberra community. Despite feeling nervous, these students rose to the challenge and returned with stories about the surprising generosity they encountered.


We would like to congratulate and thank our co-curricular Music students for their participation in performances at the Royal Canberra Show this year. The contribution that these students have made towards supporting community events and representing Merici College has been amazing.
