Mary’s Mass – May 2021

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good Sunday. The weather was beautiful, with sunny skies and a nice breeze. I enjoyed spending time in my garden, and I should have had a bbq… next time I will!

Today we had a special event at school, 聖母祭. This is a mass which celebrates Mary. Usually, each class presents a paper with the class goal, and a bouquet of flowers. Then, after the mass, students present the flowers to people who have helped them, such as elementary school teachers.

However, this year we had to make a different plan because not all students were in the gym. So, we brought the big (180cm!) statue of Mary from the church to the stage, and surrounded it with many different flower pots. The leader of each class still brought the class goal up to the stage.

Not everyone could go in the gym, but we could all watch on the screens in the classroom. I am looking forward to the day where we can all celebrate together. Anyway, here are some pictures:

Have a great week, Allen
