Both 3rd grades prepared the liturgy for the Feast of St. Francis. The liturgy began with the story of the Saint's life and the class recitation of the Prayer of St. Francis.Fr. Bob Hutmacher was our celebrant. The entrance procession included four third graders carrying items representing care for the earth: a stuffed tiger (endangered animals), a pitcher of water, a globe, and a plant. The 3rd graders have pledged to support the environment by becoming Zero Waste Ambassadors in the lunchroom. Finally, Fr. Bob was congratulated on his 50 years as a Franciscan with a large card signed by the entire school and a plant. Today was a wonderful celebration, which continued as Fr. Bob visited the 3-year-olds and will also attend the mini-charger gathering tomorrow. See pictures in our Gallery.
