A “Jichin-sai” (Japanese ground-breaking purification ceremony) was held in the playground of our school.
This ceremony is one of Japan’s traditional customs, held before we build a new building to calm the god of land.
This ceremony is usually administered by a Shinto priest, but this time, it was administered by a Father in the Catholic Church.
We prayed that there will be no accidents during the construction, and sang songs for the ceremony.
Finally, the Catholic Father scattered water and salt over the playground to purify the land.
We are all looking forward to our new school building.
Please look forward to our blog being updated.
