May – Month of Mary

posted in: Blog, Liturgical Year | 4

In May we met once again with friends for an afternoon of ‘Faith and Fellowship.’  May’s theme was,of course Marian.  During the last few months we have been blessed with having a young, enthusiastic priest on a short term stay in the parish. We invited Father Nicholas to join us and he was delighted to do so:)

Father discussed Marian art, challenging the children to study and share their observations.  Father N teaches in the seminary and is quite comfortable using electronics as a teaching tool, as most of the children are under 10 the visual media helped keep their attention.

After lunch the children had a choice of art activities.  The older ones chose to make Marian grottos,

the younger children had a selection of Marian colouring pictures

 

and used their own creativity in layout and decoration.

 

Meanwhile Father introduced the older ones to wood carving.
Another successful afternoon:)

    Thank YOU for your friendship and for your enthusiasm:){}

  3. An afternoon of Marian art sounds so creative and inspiring, Erin:-) And, how lovely of your priest to spend the afternoon with you – it must have been so lovely.

    The photos are beautiful – my favourite is the one of the boys doing the woodcarving. Is it that back view that's working so well, I wonder?!

    It was lovely, we have been so blessed to have him.
    The 'boys' is Father and my Michelangelo;) actually I 'cheated' and touched it up in pikmonkey. It was too dark.
