Notre Dame College Theme for 2017


‘Be guided with a trusting heart’

 Our College theme for 2017 is based on one of the proverbs from the Book of Proverbs which is found in the Old Testament.

 Proverbs 3

Trust and Honour God

My child, do not forget my teaching,
but let your heart keep my commandments;
for length of days and years of life
and abundant welfare they will give you.

Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favour and good repute
in the sight of God and of people.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own insight.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
It will be a healing for your flesh
and a refreshment for your body.

The Proverb then goes on to inform the reader of True Wealth – verse 15 states ‘She (wisdom) is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her’; in verse 19 we are told of God’s Wisdom in Creation ‘The  Lord  by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens’; and in verse 23 we are reassured about True Security – ‘Then you will walk on your way securely and your foot will not stumble’.

The College theme for this year is also a good introduction to an important piece of art that the College has commissioned. A sculpture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be presented to our community at College Mass on Wednesday, 1st March. As part of the Mass celebrations, all students and staff at the College will be placing personal prayer intentions into this heart sculpture. The heart will then be displayed in the reception area of the College.
