Paper cranes for Pentecost

 Over 400 paper cranes were folded to decorate Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Coorparoo (QLD), for Pentecost - a prayer for the gift of universal peace and a celebration of the spirit present and alive in the members of our community.

“Like peace, folding paper cranes is not always so easy, but takes perseverance, patience and trust,” Fr Matthew Tonini, Associate Pastor, said. “Every attempt brings us closer as a community and unites us in a commitment to justice and peace.”

The colourful cranes were folded by parishioners, students and teachers from Mt Carmel school and St Peter Claver College and children’s liturgy of the word and threaded and hung around the church in an array of colours and patterns.

“The diversity of cranes reflects the diversity of our community united in the one Spirit,” Matthew said.

The display will remain in the church for the month of June.
