St Matthew's School's New Banner

The new banner of St Matthew's School, Lima, was presented in the Cathedral during the ordination service on 5th May. The school was represented by the the Head Teacher, members of staff, parents and pupils.
After the service, during which the children behaved beautifully, pupils and staff presented a number of traditional Peruvian dances. Finally they danced through the reception, drawing people into their dance and presenting the guests with typical hats and shawls.
In a speech, the Head Teacher, Mrs Carmen Sanchez, said that the presentation of dances was done with much love and in honour of the newly ordained deacon and our visitors.
The dancing was a beautiful and inspiring conclusion to a memorable and historic event in the life of the diocese.
