Dear members of the St Greg’s family,
Last Friday we celebrated the Feast of St Gregory the Great. It also included a Father’s Day breakfast for the junior school on Thursday and the senior school on Friday. It was fantastic to see so many dads and role models for our young people attend. We were also blessed in our Mass to have almost 250 dads attend (along with other family and guests), culminating in almost 2000 people attending the Mass where the 2024 College Leaders were announced.
In my address I spoke about St Gregory the man. St. Gregory the Great was an aristocrat, born to rule; a wealthy landowner; a statesman; a Roman of the Romans; a loyal subject of the Roman Empire, and of the Emperor whose seat was in Constantinople. But first and foremost, he was a Christian, a man of God, a contemplative, a mystic: outstanding for his knowledge and love of holy scripture, for his humility, for his prayer. Later ages conferred on him the title of Doctor of the Church.
