A year of service

During the first weeks of high school, miss i put her name down to be a Sacristan for her school. Miss i is baptised as a Catholic and attended a Catholic primary school where she completed her Reconcilliation, First holy communion, and her Confirmation. Miss i now attends an Anglican High School and so I was intrigued when she decided to take on this role.

She attended a weekend camp and has been on a roster to serve at school chapel services.

On Sunday night we were invited to attend the school chapel for the Advent Service. Miss i read a Reading and participated in a lovely service. It was not a traditional mass, but a series of hymns sung mostly by the school choir, and readings. The chapel was in darkness except for candles. After each reading, a series of candles were lit, until nearly two dozen candles were glowing. It was very tranquil.

I took a photo of miss i during her reading (the First Reading, so not many candles at this stage).

This is but one of many journeys miss i has taken in her first year of high school.
