Maryknoll Day

Fr Michael Slobada, MM was invited to give us a talk on the life of Fr Thomas Frederick Price, MM, one of the founders of the Maryknoll Missionaries. The school together learnt more about the prejudice that Fr Price had faced, and we were encouraged to face challenges ahead of us with faith, prudence and temperance.

Fr. Price started the Maryknoll Mission in China in 1918 but he died the following year on 12th September 1919; he was 59 years old. Maryknoll commemorates the centenary of his death this year.
