St. Patrick Cathedral

Four students got picked to represent our schools. We went to town to St Patrick Cathedral. We got invited because we were a part of the Caring foundation.  These four students are (Seauti. Patrick, Alecia and I we also went with Mr. Coakley.

I felt excited , Happy and honoured to go and represent our school. The mass started at 12:15pm but we left at  11:30pm after morning tea, from school.  We hopped in Mr Coakley’s car  &  drove off. It was fun roaming around town, we saw different things when we were driving, we saw chickens on the road,  the Skycity and the Sky tower.  We saw other things especially a Steam train, well it was kinda broken but we saw it anyways.

We were looking for a parking near the cathedral, but nearly all the parkings were reserved.  So we parked at another area.  Town was pretty packed. We finally found a carpark, but it was all the way at the top. When I got off , I was scared because i wasn’t indoor carpark it’s was outdoor car park.  We went through the elevator and walked out town to go to the mass.  When we were walking we saw the church, Bishop Patrick just walked inside the church.  We were almost late.. When we walked inside the church, there were a lot of people,  We went and sat down then the mass began.  It was a big church, I also saw the station of the cross and other pictures.  The mass was pretty simple, I knew some of the songs., because we sing those songs at mass in my school.

During the mass some people had went up to the Bishop and received their blessings from him. There were afternoon tea too. We ate and had our name tags on, so the other school knows our names.  After we had our tea, the Bishop came inside the hall and said his Thanks to everyone for attending the mass, then they called out names of the schools that had been attending the mass, they gave certificates out to the schools that came.

Later on we had to come back , I enjoyed every moments that has happened today. I also like being out representing my school, and also being out with other students too. I really enjoyed today.
