The Eucharistic Celebration on Ash Wednesday at Sekolah Harapan Bangsa Modernland Elementary School, Tangerang, took place in a solemn and orderly manner.
Mass was held at the Sekolah Harapan Bangsa Gymnasium at 10.00 WIB. The celebration, which is associated with the conversion period of Catholics, was attended by kindergarten, elementary, junior high, high school and Cambridge students. In addition, the mass was attended by local people who live around the school.
During the Mass, the students attended in an orderly manner and listened to the priest’s sermon. In his homily, Pak Romo invited students to be diligent in doing good as a sign of repentance. Acting as choir officers were students in grades 4, 5 and 6. Their clear voices made the mass proceed solemnly.
This spiritual service really has a broad meaning because apart from being a routine Faith Day activity, this event is also a school concern to increase the faith of students. Nowadays, spiritual services like this are really needed in today’s world because of various problems that often make people forget about the spiritual side.
Many of the local people who attended the Ash Wednesday Eucharist indicated that they enthusiastically welcomed this kind of school program. In addition, the celebration of Ash Wednesday, which has been routinely carried out for years, is also a way for schools to provide services to the surrounding environment, especially spiritual services.
Hopefully this activity will continue to be held in the future.
Bravo Sekolah Harapan Bangsa .
