The spirit of ‘Praise and Worship’ unites Lancer community

The sounds of joyful chorus filled Sacred Hearts Academy’s St. Mary Margaret’s Chapel early Friday evening, as the LIFE Team hosted the school’s first “Praise and Worship.”

Senior Shailyn Makana Wilson had an enjoyable experience while at the event.

“The experience I got at ‘Praise and Worship’ is really like no other feeling, and there is no real way to describe (it),” Wilson said. “It was really fun to be able to sing some of my favorite praise and worship songs with my friends.”

The “Praise and Worship” included many attendees, such as students from Kamehameha, Damien Memorial School and Waipahu High School, and their families. The teens spent the night dancing and singing along to the tunes of Refiner’s Worship, a New Christian band formed by parishioners from St. John Apostle and Evangelist Church.

With the support of those who attended, LIFE Team was able to donate $166 to Hoola Na Pua, a local organization with a mission to aid female victims of human trafficking.

Between songs, participants enjoyed brownies, cookies, hot dogs and juice, provided by the LIFE Team and fellowship.

Wilson believes that everyone should experience a “Praise and Worship.”

“I would definitely encourage people to go,” she said. “They should come because it really is an amazing experience. Once you start to sing the songs and see how everyone starts to interact with each other, you will not want to leave.”
