It was probably a first, setting a record. On Wednesday 17th June 2020, three teachers and one student of La Salle College, Kowloon, took part in the Rite of Acceptance for Baptism in the College Chapel of La Salle. The three teachers were Charlotte Chung, Martin Ma, and Timothy Szeto while the Form 1 boy was Alvin Kwok.
Normally, the Rite would be held in the parish church but the COVID-19 virus has changed things. The approval to hold the ceremony in the school chapel was given by Fr Gabriel Ortega, who was also the celebrant for the occasion.
Both Fr Gabriel and Br Thomas Lavin gave meaningful reflections about the journey that lies ahead. At the end, pictures were taken for the record. (Text: Br. Pat Tierney FSC; Photos: Mr. Francis Tse)
