Teachers were sharing some comments from past and present Diocesan Visitations which occurs annually. Today was the day for this year. Monsignor Perkinton, Sister Collette and Father Kilcawley visit the classrooms. We may be crazy for having it on Halloween, but sometimes you have to go with the date given. In one of the visits to the classrooms, Father asked the children, “What are you learning in religion?”
“We don’t have religion here,” one little fellow piped up.
The teacher, calm as could be, but a little confused rephrased the question, “What are we learning about Jesus?”
The same little fellow chimed in with something like, “Oh, I don’t know what religion is, but we learn a lot about Jesus, we talk about Him all the time.”
It just goes to show you, don’t stop too soon with the questions. We learn a lot about Jesus and His friends, too, especially this week with All Saints Day. The First graders dress up as their patron Saint and do a beautiful program for the school. Preschoolers dress up, too; this picture from yesterday’s group.
They all knew who they were representing. St. Florian patron of fire fighters was among them. You learn something new every day, and sometimes from preschoolers!
Blessed to count myself among His friends,
Sister Mary Michael
