Back to Our Roots
The ERE Committee organized Religious Afternoon for all our S.1 students with a visit to Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Yuen Long, on the beautiful afternoon of 7th October. The afternoon brought together teachers of the ERE Committee, parishioners of the Church, and our ex-Supervisor, Father Gervais.
The activity aimed to enhance the understanding of our students of Shung Tak’s history which was founded as part of this church. It was a chance to reflect — to learn more about the Church especially as we are a Catholic school; and the predecessors who offered their life and spirit to develop our school. The permanent exhibition “Arma Christi” (Weapons of Christ) and the replica of the Holy Shroud at the church were eye-opening for our S.1 students. To see more details of these two exhibits, and to learn more about the work of Ss. Peter and Paul Church, see the webpage of the Church at (http://www.sspeterandpaul.org.hk/?lang=en).
It was a novel experience for many of our students who have not visited any churches before. We pray that this visit would be one of many and that each and every one of them open their hearts and minds to the works of Jesus. Amen.
