On the evening of Thursday, Dec. 12, students and their families gathered at St. Paul’s to experience the annual Luminarias Celebration on campus. During the Luminarias, those who attended could walk all over campus, which was lit by the candlelight of over a thousand candles, prepared earlier by members of the National Honors Society.
“I always look forward to watching the campus illuminate,” Eric Boudet, SPS senior, said. “The pond looks absolutely stunning with the lights surrounding it. It is very beautiful and very symbolic of Jesus being a Light of the World.”
For Luminarias each year, the student council selects a word to spell out with the candles in the football stadium, this year choosing the word “gracia” which is Spanish for “grace.”
“I thought the student council picked a wonderful word seeing as how we are in the year of grace,” Ross Albritton, SPS junior, said.
