Service and Sacrifice
We will Remember them
Challenge 2000 facilitated ANZAC themed Masses in the Archdiocese of Wellington at; San Antonio Eastbourne, St Patrick’s Masterton, Ss Peter and Paul Johnsonville, St Anne’s Newtown and the Sacred Heart Cathedral Wellington. 60 Young people – staff, volunteers, Gap students, Wairarapa locals and students from Chanel College, St Patricks School and Carterton, produced moving performances that recognised and remembered those who served and made sacrifices, both overseas and at home during various wars.
One of the key lines from the drama was “when you go home tell them of us and say for your tomorrow we gave our today”. The emphasis was also that while remembering is important, it is even more important that we honour them by choosing to live lives of service and sacrifice today.
