Today's Mass for Peace closed with a moving ceremony prepared by the 8th graders. Introductory remarks reminded us of the school tragedy on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School. A central lit taper burned as one by one seventeen 8th graders came forward to light a candle. A reader proclaimed the names and details about the lives and hopes of those who died. The school congregation solemnly watched as the candle-bearers placed themselves around the church.

Tomorrow, March 14th, is a day when students nationwide will be walking out of class to bring awareness to school violence. Ascension School will instead be showing our solidarity through prayer. Our eighth grade students have carefully prepared an all-school Mass for our entire community to promote peace, and will memorialize the 17 victims of the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The Mass will be held at Ascension Church at 9:30 am. All are Welcome.
