On Christmas Eve each year, old scholars and friends of Dominic College celebrate with carols and Mass in the Dominic College Chapel, in memory of Br Peter Dezani SDB.
The ceremony this year saw a good congregation of old scholar families, current families, some new and some old faces. The event was managed by our own Mr Tony Webb, along with the indomitable Ms Diane Cerritelli. The pair have been the driving force for this occasion for many, many years and their support is much appreciated. The music and singing was wonderfully led by members of the St John's Parish Choir, thanks to the ongoing support from Mrs Anne Loring.
Thank you also to the readers, and special thanks to Fr Peter Rankin SDB who was celebrating his final Mass at the College as he will move to Victoria and become the Vice Provincial of the Salesians from the end of January. The new Dominic College Rector will be familiar to many old scholars: Fr Bernie Graham SDB, former Principal of Dominic College in the 1990s.
The collection was taken up for the Br Peter Dezani Scholarship Fund. Dominic College Principal, Ms Beth Gilligan, attended and expressed gratitude for a blessed occasion concluding a challenging year.
