Visiting Holy Cross

On Monday, the preps ventured across the road to visit Holy Cross church. This visit consolidated classroom activities which gave the children an understanding of the Church and its furnishings. The children were able to link the altar to the Last Supper of Jesus. They were excited to see the tabernacle, which is used for keeping the consecrated Eucharist. Two large crucifix were admired and great curiosity around the statues of saints was evident. The highlight for the preps was, undoubtedly blessing themselves with holy water, where one prep was heard to report, “Holy water is wet!”
