The blessing of a building by a Catholic priest is a common practice in the
Catholic Church. It involves invoking God's blessing upon the structure and its
occupants, dedicating the building to God's service and asking for protection,
guidance and grace.
The school administration sought to create a positive and spiritually enriched environment within the premises. The ceremony aimed to establish a sacred space that would foster harmony, peace and a conducive learning environment for the students, teachers and staff.
The priest performed specific rituals, such as sprinkling holy water or using incense to purify the building. He proceeded to bless each room, corridor and common area while reciting prayers for protection, wisdom, and positive energy.
