Snapshots of Spring
Sorry for the delay in posting! We may not have had the time to post, but we did find the time to do many different things. Actually, We have been so busy since the end of Lent that I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I will start at the beginning and layout snapshots of what the group has been up to since our last post.
As many of you may already know, we picked prayer partners at the beginning of the Advent season and have been praying for them ever since. During Lent our group was blessed to be invited to the convent of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament so that we could meet those we were praying for. It was a lovely day. Everyone found their partners and the room was filled with chatter and laughter as everyone got to know one another. Our time with the sisters ended with a snack and a promise to continue to offer up sacrifices and prayers for one another. My daughter and her partner, Sister Virginia, even promised to pray the rosary together for world peace. The day was filled with joy and love.
Thank you to all the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for their generous love and hospitality.
Shortly after this visit we held our annual MARCH FAIR. This year’s topic was the Sacramentals of the Church. The children (and adults) all learned a great deal. This was a nice opportunity for the children to work together with their families researching their chosen sacramental and putting together a presentation board. It was also a perfect opportunity for the children to practice their public speaking skills.
After a long winter of cancellations due to illness, we FINALLY started our Little Flowers group. I made each girl their very own St. Therese doll and binder to start the journey. At the first meeting, they all decorated bags and t-shirts. We enjoyed learning about St. Therese, the Little Flowers Girls’ Club and the virtue of faith.
Being with such beautiful young ladies was just what I needed after such a long winter.
These Little Flowers bloom all year round!
Peace to all,
