Marian Catholic School in Hamilton held a blessing ceremony for their new Mary and Charism gardens which are located in the heart of the school.
The school caters for 600 students from Year 1 through to Year 8. It was established in 1989 following the amalgamation of St Mary’s Cathedral School and Marist School. The Charism garden recognizes and celebrates the founding charisms of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions foundress, Euphrasie Barbier and the Marist Brothers founder, Marcellin Champagnat.
Fr Darren McFarlane, parish priest at the Cathedral blessed the gardens. The blessing was followed by a short speech from the Principal, Debra White. The ceremony was arranged by Nicki Whyte, the director of religious studies.
