Archbishop springs surprise on school hero

Blue Mountains school principal Serge Rosato had no idea when Sydney’s Archbishop-elect Anthony Fisher OP called him up to the lectern that he would soon be wearing a papal medal for outstanding service.

Archbishop Fisher sprang the Benemerenti award on a humble Mr Rosato at a special community service of thanksgiving at St Thomas Aquinas primary, Springwood, on 17 October, marking one year since devastating fires destroyed 193 homes in the area.

On 17 October, 2013, Mr Rosato led more than 550 students and staff to the Winmalee Shopping Centre as bushfires threatened school property, even as he was aware that his own home had already been destroyed in the blaze.

Hundreds of parents, students and community members joined together in prayer and song before Archbishop Fisher, as Bishop of Parramatta, presented teachers and staff with a Catholic Education Office certificate of appreciation for their commitment to the children on that day.     [Full Story]
