On Friday, 7 September students from Sydney Catholic secondary schools across the Archdiocese were presented with awards for excellence from Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP. McKenily Bumenlag was the 2018 Marist College Kogarah recipient.
Forty nine students were individually recognised across the Archdiocese during a ceremony at St Mary's Cathedral in front of their peers, teachers and proud families.
The following citation was read at the Archbishop’s Awards - “As an active member of both his parish and school community, the recipient is a sincere young man committed to endorsing Catholic values. With a strong desire to be a role model to younger students, he takes pride in always assisting those in need; and demonstrating his commitment through involvement in many of the College’s programs. As an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, he has been significantly involved in many aspects of his local parish, thereby carrying on his mission for his faith to be present in all facets of his life.”
