SRL Ends Month of Mary with Coronation Ceremony 2008

A fitting conclusion to May, the Month of Mary, came with the annual Coronation Ceremony held at the school hall. The solemn service was organized and conducted by the Religious Affairs Committee of the Students' Association, under the guidance of its moderators.

The statue of the Blessed Mother was beautifully set up in the school hall, surrounded by bouquets of flowers, and symbolically crowned as the Secondary Choir sang The Song of Mary. The Coronation Ceremony reminded everyone about the beauty and challenges of motherhood and the strength that comes from the powerful intercession of the best mother in the world, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Special intentions were also said for the earthquake victims of the quake that struck the province of Sichuan, China on May 12th, 2008. Within the same month, SRL students dug deep into their pockets and allowances and collectively donated over MOP200,000.00 for earthquake relief. In this world where it has become easy to ignore the sufferings and misfortune of others, it is comforting to know that we all still care.
