The soil has been blessed on the grounds of what will soon become the Good Samaritan Catholic College at Parklakes 2 in Bli Bli.
Held under a cloudless sky, Good Samaritan Catholic College Principal Greg Myers said today’s blessing ceremony was a community celebration.
“Today is a significant event for the new college, the community here on the Sunshine Coast, in particular Bli Bli, as well as Brisbane Catholic Education,” Mr Myers said.
“This has been in the planning for many years, and the dream is finally becoming a reality, with still many years of growth to come.”
Father Kevin Smith from the Caloundra Parish, blessed the ceremony with a gospel reading, as well as a watermark ceremony of the soil.
Members of the Brisbane Catholic Education, local MPs, newly enrolled students and parents also attended the blessing.
