The College of Our Lady of Fatima celebrated its 75th anniversary of establishment with Holy Mass last Friday. Chief celebrant and Fatima old boy, Archbishop Jason Gordon said the challenge for the college and all Catholic schools is “how we hand the faith to this generation in a way that is credible to allow each one to hear God’s Call, to discern that Call and courage to live that Call”.
The Mass was held outdoors with a stage mounted on the school’s carpark with seating in the quadrangle for invited guests, religious, parents, former students and current students representing the various forms.
Archbishop Emeritus Joseph Harris, Bishop Emeritus Malcolm Galt and Bishop Robert Llanos of the Diocese of St John’s-Basseterre (Antigua & Barbuda), another Fatima old boy, were the main celebrants.
Vicar General Fr Martin Sirju and Superior General of the Holy Ghost Fathers (Spiritans) Fr John Fogerty, visiting from Rome, Italy were among the concelebrating clergy, which included several former Fatima students. The Spiritans started the school.
