Golden Jubilee Thanksgiving Mass


The Golden Jubilee Thanksgiving Mass, the first celebratory event of our 50th Anniversary, was held on 6 September in the spirit of Joy and Thanksgiving. We were very much blessed to have the presence of Bishop Ha Chi-shing, as our main celebrant and two concelebrants, Father Joseph Buzzo and Father Roland Jablonski, as well as support from Deacon Bosco Wong.

We thanked God for the nice weather, for the return of the 45 alumni together with present student representatives, each representing the students from different entry year in the 50 years of foundation of the school, in the flower offering ceremony as well as the participation of the good ‘old’ friends of Tak Oi for the event. The homily of Bishop Ha was inspiring, expounding the 50th Anniversary theme ‘Grace Upon Grace’, reinforcing the spirit of sharing as an expression of thanksgiving and reminding us of living out the Christian spirit of love and acceptance. It was a warm, joyous and memorable occasion for all. We are indeed grateful.

Following the Mass was the blessing of the new facilities of the school – Our Lady of Charity Chapel, the e3 Learning Centre, the Jubilee Court and the Grotto. Both the guests joining the Blessing Ceremony as well as the assembly in the Hall watching the blessing process live were amazed at the beautiful art works and paintings in the Chapel and the outside corridor, the Delia Tetreault's Avenue, as well as the architectural beauty of the Grotto, with St. Bernadette in Lourdes praying to Mother Mary.

For all the blessing we have received from God, in a deep sense of gratitude, we move on. Grace Upon Grace - rejoice!
