Blessing of School and New Convent
On Saturday 8 December we had a Solemn High Mass in the Church for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. This beautiful Mass was followed by the blessing of the school and convent.
After Mass, the Celebrant, Fr Couture, and the Deacon, Fr Cranshaw, and the Subdeacon, Fr Jackson, went in procession with the servers to the new Convent and School. After a prayer of blessing the Ministers went in procession, led by the Sisters, right through the building, sprinkling it with Holy Water.
After the blessing there were photographs and then the parishioners joined us for a morning-tea in the first classroom. A happy time was had by all.
