The clinking of china and chatter of good friends gathering resounded throughout the Mercy Centre at last week’s Ryan House High Tea – a joyful hubbub which flowed as freely as the freshly brewed tea poured by our student volunteers.

Coinciding with the 150th anniversary celebrations for the Sisters of Mercy and Catholic Education Week, the High Tea was Ryan House’s way to continue the mission of the Sisters of Mercy and their outreach to vulnerable communities.

Ryan House Dean and Event Organiser Mrs Leonie Wanchap said it was a privilege for Ryan House, named after Sr Andrina Ryan who was an icon of the College to bring it together and was effusive in her appreciation for the support received.

“I would like to thank everyone who came, volunteered, bought tickets to the multi-draw raffle, contributed prizes, cash and support for the event to create something very special”

“I would particularly like to thank our Ryan House student volunteers who really shone,” she said.

“It has meant so much. Together we have nurtured compassion within our community, worked together on a project that cares for others, raised funds for Mercy Works Australia and have shared a wonderful afternoon together and we’re all the richer for it” she said.
