Acknowledgment of country:
Let us have a sense of the importance of the country on which we are standing, where learning and ceremony have taken place over many thousands of years.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land - the Turrbul people northside of the Brisbane river, and pay respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
May we continue to walk gently and respectfully on this land. In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where St John Fisher College stands, and recognise that this has always been a place of teaching and learning.
For we too are in land, one in spirit, one in faith united in God's love.
Loving Father, you bring light to the darkness of this world. We pray that you would bring understanding, knowledge, and acceptance of the truth and expose what lurks in the dark and bring it into the light.
