Noongar Country & Catholic Ecological Connection

On behalf of Catholic EarthCare and Aboriginal Catholic Ministry we would like to invite you to a sharing on Noongar Country in Kings Park on Sunday the 5th of November from 11am-2pm, where we will learn about the local environment from a Noongar custodian and reflect on our Catholic call to care for creation and the wisdom and culture of Aboriginal people in regards to stewardship and connection to land. The day will end with a shared lunch (bring food to share) and a Mass. Children welcome and encouraged.

Limelight Theatre

Current and former Mater Dei students are treading the boards at the Limelight Theatre in Wanneroo which will be presenting: ‘The Wedding Singer’ Directed by Jen Edwards and David Nelson.

This production will showcase the talents of ex-Mater Dei students Emerson Brophy and Ashlee Torrens (Graduating class 2010) and Maggie Clark (Graduating class 2013).

From our current student cohort, they will be joined by Caitlin Easton (Year 12), Keely Lynch (Year 10) and Blake Torrens (Year 11) – all of whom were members of the College production of ‘Grease’

If you enjoyed ‘Grease’, then you will love ‘The Wedding Singer’ with all the crazy hair and crazy attitudes you would expect from a time-warp back to the 80’s, come on down to your local theatre and support the local talent presented by this amazing cast of young, old and everyone in-between. Tickets are selling fast so get in quick for your chance to what the amazing youth of our community has to offer.
