Eucharistic Day at our School

On Friday 12th June we celebrated the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at our School.  The day started with Holy Mass which was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Deo Debono, the parish priest of Saint Augustine in Valletta. During this Mass, our school colleagues from Year 2 received Holy Communion for the first time at school. It was really nice as we all sang beautiful hymns prayed and participated all together in this well organized activity. Particular moments were when the pupils put white flowers in a vase at the foot of the altar, when Fr. Deo recounted a very nice story to which we all listened attentively , when we sang Our Father whilst joining hands and when we all received Jesus during Communion. Then, after Mass, we had a procession during which the Holy Eucharist was solemnly tranported to a special place in our school which was prepared for a time for private adoration. The year 2 pupils had a party and they received gifts from their class teachers and from the SMT. All the school was very nicely decorated with candles and flowers for this very special day. A very big thank you to all the members of staff who worked towards the success of this event and a special thank you to dear Jesus for spending a day with us at school.

All our Year 2 pupils were enthusiastic on the day and smart and neat in their Holy Communion suits.  A big thanks to Ms Jane Farrugia who is always willing to help out with professional photo taking of such commemorative days at school.
