Lusia's Cathedral Writing

St Pius the tenth had an opportunity to go to the cathedral. We went to the cathedral because it was year of mercy. So first we were going for morning tea time and we were getting ready to go. We went to get our soul friends and look after them when we go to the city. After a little while the bus was there and we had to go to the bus quickly.

Once we arrived we were waiting for the people to get in the cathedral so we can go inside from the other side. When we were getting inside we went past the merciful door and touched the holy water from the cathedral. Then as we went to sit down I saw the big layout of the church, Stained glass windows, Ascension and Assumption. And I also saw the baptismal font.

And father came and we stood up and sang a song to welcome him. After father came and sat down he told us that this chair next to him was the bishops chair, noone can sit in that chair except for the Bishop of the Diocese of Auckland. And one of the readers were reading about how pilgrimage journey of mercy and how he were going through on his journey. Then after he had finished his last sentence on the bible everyone stood up and we were listening to what father was saying.

Then me and all the kids from St Pius kneeled down and listened to fathers talking about the bread and wine. Then after a while we stood up to sing the bread broken song and some people were receiving the body of Christ. Then after they got their bread it was our turn to get blessed and receive holy communion. Then after we got blessed by father then we went back to our seats and waited awhile.
After a awhile I felt hungry and thinking of food. But when we finished the mass we went to have a tour around the church and the first thing I saw was the foundation stone. Father told us about the foundation stone story. The church is 150 years old and it’s still up and running.

After he showed us a tour he told us to sing a song it goes like this “Merciful like the father”. Heaps of times till we all touched water of mercy and went outside past the merciful door. When we went outside we went straight to Liston hall next to the cathedral to have lunch there. Then after we had lunch we were playing hand games till the bus came.

As soon as the bus came our teachers were taking us to the bus to go back to school. And once we came back to school we were tired but happy we went to the cathedral. Then we went to go play because it wasn’t time till the end of the day.
