Why Did Father Jesus Wear Red?


Gabriela Pinate, Writer

At the back to school Mass, Father Jesus wore red because it symbolizes blood and passion in remembrance of Christian martyrs such as St.Cornelius, a Roman priest who died in 253  who served as pope from 251 to 253 during a lull in the persecution of Christians.

At Mass we also celebrated students who achieved Academic Distinction, as well as those who received first and second honor roll from the four quarter of last year.

If you want to find out more of the people who achieved Academic Distinction, you can check out the announcement, Congratulations to Students Who Achieved Academic Distinction in the Royal Courier.

This Mass was preceded the first gym yearbook distribution since before the pandemic making it very special in a way for the sophomores because it was their very first yearbook here at ILS.

The Mass was a beautiful get-together as a school with amazing music and so much to celebrate”
