VG: ‘Holy Innocents’ shouldn’t be cosmetic

Mother Tenisha Phillips looks on as her daughter, 14-month-old Keithisha receives a blessing from Fr Sirju.

The Feast of Holy Innocents should not be a “cosmetic” exercise but a time for parents to reinforce the faith formation given throughout the year.

Cathedral Administrator, Vicar General Fr Martin Sirju said: “I think that if parents just send their children to a feast like this but do not fulfil the role of parenting throughout the year; it is just cosmetic. It does not do much for the children…so this must really be a kind of little crown on what they do throughout the year.”
