Beginning of Year Mass 2017

To mark the start of a new school year, we celebrated Mass on 13 January 2017. The theme of the mass was Walk in Love, Live in Unity and it reflected our journey to grow together as a school as One Heart, One Love and One Family. Our new Principal, Mrs Cheong, read the first reading from the letter of Paul to the Ephesians 4:1-6. The Gospel reading was taken from Mark 2: 1-12. In his homily, Father Eugene Vaz called for us to be like the 4 men who carried the paralytic to Jesus. Not only should we pray to grow in The Lord’s ways, but we should also set an example and show to others how to live in His ways. Mass ended with everyone singing Bind us together as the recessional hymn. 

Before mass began, Mrs Pauline Tan shared the following lovely poem aptly titled-

One Heart, One Love, One Family
As we begin our journey this new year
Let us fill our hearts with love, not fear
Kind words and acts that will bring us closer
One step at a time, to one another 
Do not be afraid to show that you care
The bonds of friendship are what we will share
With peace and joy let us walk in love
 Showered with God’s blessings from up above
Together we will live in unity
ONE HEART, ONE LOVE, ONE FAMILY
