We acted out the Sacrament of the Sick and said the words of the priest;
Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit.
May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.
We read the story of The Flight into Egypt and how Joseph was warned in a dream.
There is a tradition of praying to St. Joseph while he is asleep because God always sent an angel to help him when he was in trouble, while he was sleeping.
We put our own prayers under 'sleeping St. Joseph'.
After Harvest Mass today, we thought about Father Sean's words.
We thank God for our harvest. We are grateful for the food we have to eat. We think about those less fortunate and share what we have. Our donations are going to St. Chad's Sanctuary.
Extraordinary Month of Mission - October 2019
We learned about David and about psalms in the Old Testament. We studied Psalm 23. We talked about psalms being special prayers of thanks and praise to God.
We wrote a class psalm:
You are with me always Lord
and you guide me.
You love and care for me.
Thank you for everything.
I want to follow in your ways always.
