Divine Favour and Dedication: Mugumo Girls Confirmation, Principal Induction, and Form 1 Induction

In a momentous and spiritually uplifting occasion at Mugumo Girls High School, the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) celebrated the confirmation of students, the induction of a new principal, and the formal welcome of Form 1 students. The Bishop presided over the ceremony, drawing inspiration from the biblical account of Mary, “The Favoured Girl,” found in Luke 1:26-38.

Divine Favour and Mary’s Example: The sermon centered on Mary as the favoured girl and the ways in which she exemplified divine favour:

  1. Protection of Purity
    • Mary, as a favored girl, protected her purity. The emphasis was on the importance of maintaining moral integrity and upholding Godly values in the face of societal challenges.
  2. Development of Mental Upstairs
    • The favored girl actively developed her mental faculties. The Bishop encouraged students to prioritize education, embrace learning, and nurture intellectual growth.
  3. Spiritual Development
    • Mary’s spiritual life was highlighted as a key aspect of divine favor. The Bishop emphasized the significance of cultivating a strong spiritual foundation for resilience and guidance.
  4. Response to Divine Call
    • Mary responded positively to her divine call without hesitation. Students were encouraged to be attentive to their unique callings and to respond to them with faith and obedience.

Holy Communion and Inductions

The service included the solemn observance of Holy Communion, symbolizing unity and spiritual nourishment. Additionally, the occasion marked the induction of the new school principal and the formal induction of Form 1 students into the Mugumo Girls community.

Joyful Reception and Commitment

The students, teachers, non-teaching staff, and members of the church joyfully received the new principal. In a significant moment, the Bishop presided over the signing of documents where the principal committed to abiding by the Anglican Christian Ethos, entrusting her with the responsibility of upholding the school’s foundational values.

The ceremony was not only a celebration of academic and spiritual milestones but also a dedication to the principles that define the Anglican faith. May Mugumo Girls High School continue to be a place of learning, spiritual growth, and divine favour under the guidance of committed educators and faithful students.
