Holy Day of Obligation

'Hats on Catholics. Hats on Catholics.' The chant resounds through the corridors of our convent school. We bend our heads over our sums as fellow pupils hurry to the cloakroom and grab the Panama hats that hang on elastic straps from pegs. The chapel where the Catholic girls are headed remains a centre of mystery deep within the residence of the nuns.
