Watch: Students leave their uniforms behind and get festive

First and second year secondary school students at Stella Maris College left their their uniforms at home and instead wore shirts celebrating the feast of the patron saint of their locality. . This was not done out of a sense of pique but, as teacher Antoine Hili explained, for students to learn more about the lives of saints, not only those in heaven but also good and pious people who live around us.

“For many, saints are solely those that we see in churches, processions and so on but in reality we wanted to make students aware that saints are other people who we are sometimes unaware of, or those who left this earth before we did but lived a life of virtue.”

This event served as an opportunity for students to share their thoughts on the celebration of the feast of their patron saint, with some explaining how they contribute to the feast.

The celebration of feasts is alive and well at Stella Maris College with a group of students who take care of the tradition.

School Headmaster Manuel Cilia said that this year was a more valuable one to Stella Maris College after proceedings for the beatification of Brother Louis Camilleri were initiated. Brother Camilleri dedicated his life to Catholic education as a De La Salle Brother.

“We felt that since were celebrating the feast of all saints today, we should perhaps celebrate the saint whose home was this one.”

Teachers remembered Brother Louis Camilleri by wearing shirts on which they printed images of this beloved brother.
