November 2013 Gatherings and Projects

November has been quite a month for our Lambs, Doves, Saints and FISH! The Lambs and their parents focused on learning more about the sacraments by traveling around and touching all the items in our sacrament boxes. The Doves and Saints reflected on gratitude and the many blessings that God has given us every day. The Doves created a “Gratitude Jar,” by writing down each think that we should thank God for each day. The “young” Saints (Grade 3) learned how to say “Grace” and made Blessing Cups to use at their special family gatherings at home. The “older” Saints began a bible study, searching for the many places in Scripture that thanksgiving is expressed. They each were given their own bible and tabs.  Because the FISH group met late in the month, they learned about the Jesse Tree in preparation for Advent. It has been a great month with great attendance! Thanks to all our catechists and willing parents who share these sessions with all of us.
