St. John’s University 成年禮 it’s all happening!

Praise the Lord, the annual Coming-of-Age Celebration 成年禮 at St. John’s University yesterday was a great success!

Encouraged by special praise from the Ministry of Education inspectors last year, and organized again by the SJU Chaplaincy, instead of candles this year ~ everyone had a special St. John’s University tie ~ looks really cool!

All the 1,500 first-year students came along, plus their form tutors and many parents…

Some students made the most of the event and really dressed up, others dressed down…


and others… well some clearly had problems with their ties…. ha!


The ceremony included wine-drinking, speeches by student representatives and VIPs, prayers, presentations to students, a band, our student fellowship group (in the blue scarves) singing…


Then presentations of flowers to all the form tutors and parents, ending with a blessing from Bishop Lai…


A great event!
