Blessing of the Lanterns

On Tuesday, December 12, Retired Archbishop Larry Saldanha visited the Grade 6 class to bless the lanterns that the students had created. The students had designed and built their lanterns with the assistance of family members over the past five weeks.

Each lantern contains a scriptural passage about light, which is the theme for Grade 6 Religion course. Also, each lantern contains an electrical circuit, which powers a LED light.

The blessed lanterns will be taken home and placed in a position of importance in each student's residence for the Christmas Season.

The students thank Archbishop Larry Saldanha for his kind words of encouragement and providing meaning to the symbolism of the lanterns.
