11 glade ministranter på vei til Kristiansund!

The first session focused on training in the liturgy of the mass: Introductory Rites, the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist and Concluding Rites.

 By answering a quiz and solving a series of practical problems, both teams from Trondheim and the team from Ålesund qualified for the final. The final task was about the special liturgy of Holy Thursday, when the Sacrament is moved from the Tabernacle to a side altar. The participants had to find out what to do by reading the Missal. While completing the task, the criteria for winning the contest was managing to stay calm through the process. The winner was the team from Ålesund!

In between the training and the contest there was also some time for fun and relaxation, says Sebastian Thoresen, one of the leaders of the event. It was a very busy weekend with lots of activities! Together with Abel Amar he was in charge of the 11 ministrants travelling  from St. Olav parish in Trondheim.
