On 22 December, teachers and students assembled at the college hall to commemorate the birth of Christ. To refresh our memory about why we should celebrate Christmas, Catholic Formation Core Team has prepared for us a Biblical celebration, in which we recaptured the Scripture about the prophecy of the coming of the Messiah, as well as a video clip on Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol. Hymns were sung in resounding joy about how cheerful the shepherds on watch were when hearing the good news from the angels. God’s redemption promise to mankind has been fulfilled through the birth of His only begotten Son, Jesus in Bethlehem some 2015 years ago. Catholic students led us in prayers for the special needs, from Ebola relief work to peace in the Middle East; from well-being in Hong Kong to teachers’ strength and students’ commitment to improve themselves. It is very different from the pagan celebration elsewhere.
We have the pleasure of having Mr Giovanni Pang of WaZzup, an online radio chief to share with us his reflection on God’s love in God’s family. A devout Catholic, Giovanni, attended World Youth Day in Korea last year. The Hong Kong representative also talked to the Pope about his concern and dream.
After the programme, the Student Council led several amusing rounds of game in the hall with the students. Teachers shared in the videos about their family Christmas celebrations. Sr Veronica, Miss Florence Kwok, Ms Lam Mei Yee, and Ms Priscilla Kwok gave each class a gift of chocolate. A generous past student, Miss Leung, gave each class a big treat for the party in class.
After the class celebration, the teacher-student basketball competition kicked off at the open playground, attracting many supporters.
And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus. For he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew: 1: 21-23.
