Missionaries
in the Digital Age
Mount St Benedict College recently welcomed Bishop Peter
Comensoli on his first official visit addressing the 1,050 girls
on their unique opportunity as “young missionaries in the
digital age”.
Bishop Peter was given an insight into daily life at the College
with an informal conversation with girls keen to share
their achievements in the areas of Future Problem Solving,
leadership, social justice initiatives including student group
Kidz4Kidz and the recently introduced Year 7 integrated
program – MYBennies.
At the College Assembly Bishop Peter addressed the
community about what it means to be missionaries in this age.
He helped the girls to recognise the unique place young people
have in the digital world and the opportunities that are available
through avenues such as social media.
Bishop Peter also drew on the words of Pope Francis in his
encyclical letter ‘Laudato Si’ to emphasise the idea that “all
things are connected in our world and that through the benefits
of the digital age we have enormous scope for influence”.
The College looks forward to Bishop Peter presiding at the
College’s Jubilee Eucharist next year and other opportunities to
share in his ministry.
