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:)
