The school choir sang and led the congregation in singing. They have come a long ways since the choir was formed in the Fall of 2011.
One of our 6th grade students sang the psalm response and also read the long 2nd reading. She did an outstanding job with both tasks she volunteered for. You couldn't even tell she was a little nervous.
Fr. Ariel gave an excellent homily and the beauty that lies outside the window behind the altar always adds to our prayerful reflection.
Now, I am just waiting for the deer and horses to walk by.......................
What joy it is on Easter morning to see the resurrection of the mountains and clouds outside this beautiful window once again. (and none too soon for most of us).
Because of the flu season hitting our area hard, the pastor asked that we not hold hands at the Our Father or shake hands at the sign of peace. We were to do the peace sign but my students came up with their own anti-flu peace sign. Take a look and do try it!
|THE ELBOW PEACE SIGN|
After Mass the students served donuts, coffee and juice to the parishioners to thank them for their strong support of our school.
Some students gave tours of our school which we opened up to all along with our
"Storytelling Laboratory" Book Fair.
The day ended with our heavy "snow-like" clouds rolling down the mountains by school. They looked like a giant snow avalanche ready to roll us over in God's cloud of wonder and love.
Perhaps the clouds will do the following for us this winter season..................
HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK!If you attended Catholic School growing up, be sure to say a prayer for your teachers, the pastor and your parents who made the sacrifice to do so. Catholic Schools - passing on the Catholic faith to tomorrow's leaders of our Catholic Church.
