Feast of Immaculate Conception
In preparation for the Immaculate Conception mass, the senior peer ministry class initiated a candle decorating project where each advisory group was able to reflect on what it means to be a mother. This project brought us together in Mary’s name. These candles represent a prayer to the Virgin Mary, asking for her intercession to pray for the school on her holy day.
After the homily, the candles were lit, and the following reflection, based on the advisory group candle discussions, was read.
