Year 14 Leavers' Mass
On Friday 6 May, we held our Annual Year 14 Leavers' Mass in the College Chapel. The Class of 2016 has left us with many recollections - their camaraderie, the leadership skills they have shown, particularly over the past year and indeed, seven years of fond memories.
During the service, Head Boy, Euan Loughrey read a prayer, one which we all, parents, staff and students were touched by:
I asked God for strength, that I might achieve,
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey....
I asked for health, that I might do greater things,
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things....
I asked for riches, that I might be happy,
I was given poverty, that I might be wise....
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men,
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God....
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life,
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things....
I got nothing that I asked for -
but everything that I had hoped for,
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.
We wish them well over the coming weeks and hope that as true Malachians, they fulfil their potential in the coming years!
