Father Henry Carr ushers in the Year of Hope  
 
At Father Henry Carr staff and students are using the anchor as a symbol for the Year Of Hope. The school’s Construction Technology teacher Mr. Joseph Pedro built a huge anchor which has a flower pot attached to it. Each student received a paper cut in the shape of an anchor. But as Miles Fernandes, School Chaplain explains, “this is no ordinary paper, for hidden within the paper were seeds, and hidden within the seed is the HOPE of creation. Unless the seed falls into the ground it remains only a seed, but if it falls and dies, it bears much fruit. It is the same with those who are able to die to “self” in order for God to create something new.
 
Lose yourself in me and you will find yourself
Lose yourself in me and you will find new life
Lose yourself in me and you will find NEW HOPE
And you will live, yes; you will live in my love.”
 
Mr. Fernandes explains that “hope is not wishful thinking but believing in the promise of God, a promise made by God to all people throughout the generations.All the students and staff at Father Henry Carr have written their hopes on the anchors provided, and planted them in the flower pot. This is a symbolic act of letting go, so that God can work to create something new. Mr. Fernandes adds, “the anchor will stand throughout the Year Of Hope in the main foyer for all to see, especially on days when we feel hopeless.  Thus reflecting our theme Hope Is Our Souls Anchored In God – Hebrews.”
 
Special thanks to Mr. Pedro for his craftsmanship and talent.
