GOING BACK TO NORMALITY:
Trying to find ways of adapting to the new virtual-hybrid setting because of COVID-19, the weekly Wednesday mass will be held in person and streamed online in the school’s YouTube channel. Father I. celebrated the mass on Wednesday February 3rd alongside the sisters and some students.
“It feels me with joy to be back in the chapel celebrating Christ and our religion,” he said.
THE SCRIPTURE TALKS TO US:
Sister Sara read the first reading from the Old Testament and those attending the mass attentively listened to the Word of God. During the mass, the listeners sat down and reflected in the different passages they had just heard.
“Starting the day with mass allows us to bring to God our needs and plan for the day coming ahead. It allows for reflection and growth,” Sister Sara said.
GETTING CLOSER TO GOD:
Once the mass ended, all attendees, including the first one in line, Mrs Givner, stand waiting for a special blessing from the priest. During these hard times surrounded by the Coronavirus, mass provides a place for reflection and community.
“Going in person makes it so much better; sharing in community and experiencing the mass with each other makes it special,” Mrs. Givner said.
ALL TOGETHER AGAIN:
Father I. talked about the importance and value of a strong community. He pointed out that to live in faith we must also try our best to be the best versions of ourselves to others.
“I think that starting with mass early in the morning allows us to set ourselves up to have a great day,” Sister Maryanne said.
