Congratulations to the following principals who celebrated 20 years of service as principals in the Archdiocese of Melbourne during 2020

Mary Fitz-Gerald

Let us pray for leaders that they govern us well. That they bring our homeland, our nations, our world, forward, to achieve peace and the common good. This word of God helps us to better participate in the common life of a people: those who govern, with the service of humility and love, and the governed, with participation, and especially prayer.
