This week we discovered that we belonged to the Parish of St. Dominic and so on Thursday we walked to our church.
This is what we learnt:
St. Dominic’s Church is a very old church and is made out of blue stone and sand stone. It is very tall and has a bell tower at the top.
Father Paul was waiting for us at Saint Dominic’s church.
Father Paul and the church are very Holy!!!!! We have to be quiet, respectful and peaceful in church.
We saw where we got baptised. It is called the baptismal font.
We listened to Tia ring the bells in the church. We ring the bells in the middle of the mass when Father Paul breaks the bread and holds the chalice with wine up high.
We learnt about all the special clothes that the priests wear at different times, some clothes are purple and pink, white and yellow and green and red.
We saw the tabernacle which is a cupboard where Jesus (the bread) is kept.
The windows looked very fancy and colourful. These widows are called stained glass windows. They are special because Jesus, God and Mary were on them.
We saw the statue of St. Dominic.
We saw the bronze ( metal ) doors that are very old and beautiful.
We saw the very precious prayer book that had gold on the edges of the pages.
We saw Jesus on the cross. This is called the crucifix.
We had a great time!
Thankyou Father Paul!
