This past week has had something of an arts focus for me. I spoke at the National Gallery of Victoria on the Jesuit tradition of involvement in the Arts, and on Tuesday our Creative Arts exhibition opened. The school function at the National Gallery was a prelude to viewing the ‘the Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great’ exhibition. Fortuitously, there was a link between the Russian Empress and the Jesuits, as well as with some of the artists on show.
This week we celebrated the Valete of our senior class of 2015. While the rite of passage takes place each year with a new cohort completing their studies there are some consistencies in our hope for our graduates.
