It was a privilege to have the Rite of Dedication for our School Chapel yesterday celebrated by Bishop Paul Martin and Fr. Kevin Wei. The students assembled outside the Chapel at 9:30am for the opening prayer, and the passing over of the building documents and Chapel keys to the Bishop. This was followed by Ken Joblin leading the Room 5 and some Room 4 students in a procession into the Chapel with the invited guests.
A special thank you to the following students for their roles / responsibilities in the Rite of Dedication:
Alexander W-S, Jacob P and George K – Altar Servers
Daniel J – Responsorial Psalm
Lottie T – Chrism Oil
Cameron L – Lectionary
Morgan D – Lighting the Candle
Following the Rite of Dedication for the School Chapel, Bishop Paul blessed our new classrooms and placed a new crucifix in Room 4 and Room 5. Thank you to Samuel M and Lola for the Reading and Prayers of the Faithful. This was a special event for our school and wider community. Thank you for your support and generosity with your donations for the Chapel Chairs. The chairs have not yet been delivered due to delays.
