Bishop Marcus Stock visit to St Bede's & St Joseph's Catholic College

Recently the college was delighted to welcome our newly appointed Bishop Marcus Stock who was able to join with us to celebrate the foundation of our new college. It was important that the college was able to mark its birth liturgically and sacramentally through the celebration of the Mass and through it develop our understanding of our motto ‘Christus Lumen Gentium’ (Christ Light of the Nations) a motto that encourages all in our community to ‘Ignite’, ‘Illuminate’ and ‘Shine’.

The Bishop toured both sites and was able to witness an opening ‘liturgy of light’ and the procession of a flame drawn from candles representing the two previous schools as it made its way from Ardor to Ignis escorted by our student champions. At the beginning of Mass this flame was used to light the colleges eternal candle which is now a symbol of our new college ‘igniting’ into life and we ask everyone connected to our community to pray for us as we begin this exciting new journey together.
