To anyone we might have missed, thank you!!
The Seventh Grade Students in Religion class learned about how the Catholic Church is a “melting pot” made up of so many nationalities. What unites us in our faith is Eucharist. As part of sharing our faith through our customs and traditions, Ms. Martina shared her custom and had a traditional St. Joseph Table to honor St. Joseph on March 19th. As part of the tradition, students also made St. Joseph Altars. It all started in Sicily, and agriculture was important to the island. There had been no rain, and their fields turned to dust. The only thing that thrived was the fava bean, which is now called the “lucky bean.” The people prayed and pleaded with St. Joseph, their patron. Finally the skies opened up, sending life giving water. To show their gratitude, they prepared a table with the foods they had harvested. After paying honor to st. Joseph, they distributed the food among the poor. The Seventh Grade students had a wonderful celebration in remembrance of the feast of St. Joseph. The feast is both a source of petition, and thanksgiving. It is believed that having a St. Joseph Altar can bring good fortune.
Congratulations to this year's 5th grade class on their D.A.R.E. graduation!
