Book Launch – History of St Bede’s College

On Sunday St Bede’s College in Christchurch relaunched its centennial celebration which had been put on hold earlier this year as consequence of the earthquake. To mark the occasion a Mass was celebrated, followed by a dinner and the launching of the centennial book, The Faith of Our Fathers, the History of St Bede’s College. It is big hard covered book of 455 pages.

The author is David McCarthy.In his review of the book  Mike Crean says, “School histories often gloss over negative aspects. True to his calling as racing editor of The Press for many years, McCarthy would not stand for this. As a boarder at St Bede’s in the 1950s (five years ahead of me), he describes some unflattering features of our teachers.”
