Archbishop’s Conversation with Student Leaders

On the Friday the 13th March, the Annual Archbishop's Conversation with Student Leaders was hosted by Genazzano FCJ College. College Captains Bowde Griffith and Tegan Lafranchi; Liturgy Captain Joe Schembri and Deputy Liturgy Captain Maddison Bassal had the privilege to attend this event under the supervision of Miss Grech. The weather was as pleasant as the atmosphere, which was filled with the buzzing chatter of many eager student leaders from Catholic schools across the state. The theme for this year was centred on the ideas of 'going higher' and being pure of heart. These ideas were exemplified by Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati - a man who lived in Turin, Italy during the 1900s. Pier had a certain love for life and the poor unlike no one else and he demonstrated his holiness through random acts of kindness and charity towards anyone he crossed paths with. "The higher we go, the better we shall hear the voice of Christ." It was these words that Pier lived by and which his Grace, Archbishop Dennis Hart recounted to us. We left Genazzano College with knowledge on how to live and grow in holiness, through always striving to be more, whether that be achieved through leadership roles or listening to the voice of Christ. Another quote shared that resonated well with the crowd - simple, but very meaningful. "If you always do what you have always done, you'll always get what you've always got." Overall, the conversation was enlightening and allowed us to reflect on our faith with many like-minded individuals.
