A day of unity, joy, and global connection! We were graced with the presence of over 30 beloved Maryknoll Sisters and a Maryknoll priest visiting our school on 13 October. They travelled from Asia Pacific locations where they are doing missionary work and from Motherhouse, embracing us with their spirit of faith, service and love. Hailing from East Timor, Japan, Korea, Hawaii, Philippines, Taiwan, and USA, and despite the miles and borders between us, the connection was warm, loving and spontaneous. We gathered as one family as our talented Primary and Secondary students welcomed them with curious hearts and impressive performances. Our hearts are filled with gratitude and admiration. Each story shared, each interaction, and every precious moment has left an indelible mark on us. As we reflect on this special occasion, we are reminded of the beauty of the unity of spirit that lies within the uniqueness of each individual and the strength found in our diverse backgrounds.
“Give me joy in my heart, keep me praising. Keep me praising ’til the break of day.”
This hymn resonated in our hearts, echoing the shared commitment to serve our One Earth community. We are proud to be part of a community that cherishes diversity and strives for unity, today and every day.Together, we will forever stay true to our commitment, embrace and honor the uniqueness that makes us who we are. We are the Maryknoll family, and these values will guide us as we continue to serve our home, our country and the world.
