Junior Ring Ceremony #MHS23

My daughter's class had their Junior Ring ceremony last December 3rd, 2021 at St. Joseph the Worker Church.  Another big milestone for our first born.  There's no stopping her from growing, makes me  so excited and at the same time sad that she is  slowly slipping away from us.  I'm excited to see what's in store for her in the future, I hope and pray that hubby and I are still around to see it.  As long as we're still alive, we will be supporting whatever career path they choose.
Junior ring ceremony marks the transition of underclassmen into upperclassmen. Juniors are presented with their school rings, which symbolize their becoming the future senior class and the potential leaders of their school. The event holds more significance than the mere presentation of jewelry, it is one of the few important milestones of the students' high school life.
Since Madonna is a faith-based high school, the  ring ceremony was held  with a mass celebration with our parish priest.   The rings were blessed before they are presented to the students.
One thing I love about Madonna High School is that, their learning is centered towards faith.  Kids nowadays really need this kind of learning environment since there's just so many evils happening in the world.  
Fr. Dennis really does a great job in guiding our  students by professing the word of the Lord.
This event was held when  the pandemic is still going on so they had to wear masks but I'm still grateful that they can do it despite the situation.  They missed out on a lot of  school activities because of Covid.
Ads of this writing, two of their  classmates have left the school which makes me sad.  Their class is getting smaller each year.
It's great to see the smiling faces of these  youngsters.

 I can't believe they are almost through with their Junior year.  One more year and our  daughter will head out to college.  It makes me sad to think about it but glad that hubby and I were there to witness every milestones that our children experiences.
