Tony Harkins (Chair Tiaki Manatū) with Bernadette Collins & Shyrelle Mitchell (Deputy Chair St Mary’s College Auckland Board Directors)

After 13 years of service Bernadette Collins has retired from the St Mary’s College Auckland Board of Directors. The latest St Mary’s College Auckland newsletter has this prayer:

Gracious God,
Thank you for the gift of today.
Refresh me. Invite me to discover your presence
In each person that I meet
And every event that I encounter.

Teach me when to speak and when to listen
When to ponder and when to share.
In moments of challenge and decision
Attune my heart to the whisperings of your Wisdom.

As I undertake ordinary and unnoticed tasks,
Gift me with simple joy.
When my day goes well, may I rejoice.
When it grows difficult, surprise me with
new possibilities.
When life is overwhelming, call me to
Sabbath moments
To restore your Peace and Harmony.
May my living today reveal your Goodness.
 
Amen

And with these sentiments we wish Bernadette all the best with all her future endeavors.
