WEDNESDAY, 1ST FEBRUARY 2023 THE UNFOGETTABLE DAY!
BY SUSAN VIYELA, (12B)-The Student Press Club President.
On Wednesday 1st of February 2023. The school held the Mass Celebration whose many theme was “At St Francis and Clare, Be Focused and Disciplined”. The Mass was conducted in the school Hall at 11:50hrs.
In attendance were all leaners and members of staff inclusive of the principle himself, Mr. Sakala. The first reading and its responsorial Psalm was conducted by Susan Viyela and Grace Militu respectively.
During the Mass, Father Phiri of St. Joseph Parish of Ngwerere Compound. A very eloquent speaker and shy as he ironically put it, shared a very interesting inspiring word of God. In his sermon he stated, “Being over familiar with someone or something brings about disrespect and veils us from seeing each other’s abilities as they are.'' Fr. Phiri continued stating that even the Israelites became so over familiar with Jesus that they failed to recognise him as their Saviour. He advised everyone in attendance to guard against the desire to over familiarise themselves with those in authority.
He concluded by introducing a subject he called 'SITTING'. He brought forth a chair he called a SEAT that carried the symbol for discipline and focus that give birth to right knowledge and attitude. “If you create time to sit down on the chair and study, you are guaranteed to secure your perfect results.” He stated. He ended by urging everyone to be determined in order to accomplish their goals.
The Mass ended Final Mass Blessings, and everyone returned to their various responsibilities.
