Lakeland celebrates jubilee too
Special to the WCR
"What a memorable experience! That was just awesome!" These were the comments heard as the jubilee Mass for Lakeland Catholic students and staff came to a close on May 1.
This jubilee Mass included staff and students from all six schools in Lakeland Catholic as well as trustees and central office staff.
"This is a special year for us, this is a mark in our history as Christians and we wanted to do something out of the ordinary so our students would see how significant this jubilee year is and hope that they would remember it for a long time," said Lea Foy, religious education coordinator for Lakeland Catholic Schools.
"I think our goal was achieved and our expectations surpassed."
Students from Notre Dame Elementary reminded everyone that we are all part of the body of Christ with a dramatization of the second reading. Next the drama class from Assumption School reenacted the Last Supper as Father Real Levasseur proclaimed the Gospel.
Mackenzie River students led everyone in gestures that brought home the message that we are all part of the circle.
Students from St. Dominic School danced their way up the main aisle bringing the gifts and then setting the table.
Notre Dame High students served the Eucharist.
The Mass was concelebrated by Levasseur from Bonnyville, Father Hamilcar Blanco from Cold Lake and Father Marche from the military base at Cold Lake.
The Mass concluded as it had begun with a procession of special banners created by each school with symbols that reflected the jubilee theme.
