Bishop Morrissey visits Christ the King Catholic School, Lombadina

10 November 2022

Christ the King students welcomed Bishop Michael Morrissey and parish priest, Fr John Bosco, to the school on 19 October.

Christ the King Catholic School in the Kimberley community of Lombadina was abuzz with excitement earlier this term when Bishop Michael Morrissey visited the school.

Bishop Michael visited classes bringing warmth, joy and smiles to the students and teachers alike.  He was eager to see students’ artwork, and join in singing songs in Bardi.

Reporting on the Bishop’s visit, Year 5 student, Asim said, “We taught the Bishop how to say good morning in Bardi. He was deadly.”

The Bishop was keen to hear about the work students were doing in Culture and Language and praised the liturgical artwork being produced at the school by the students.

Year 4 student, Sophie said:

‘Bishop Michael told us a yarn about growing up on country when he was a boy.’

Principal Sharon Le Ray said that Bishop Morrissey was pleased to see that Laudato Si is very visible in the school,  “as we care for our common home, God’s creation, and each other through our school values, and as we follow the teachings of Jesus.”

Summing up the day, Year 1s Mavrick and Lyndell said:

‘We liked Bishop Michael. He came to our class and joined in singing,’ and added ‘we took a picture of our class with Bishop Michael. It is on our prayer wall next to the Pope’.

‘The Pope gave Bishop a cross which he wears around his neck. It is the same as the Pope’s.’ added Zorrin, Year 3.

The following day the school community celebrated a beautiful Mass with the theme of listening to the Voice of Creation.
