January 21st-25th

This week, we continued to learn about more celebrations by talking about our own Baptism! The children were so happy to learn that when they got baptized, they became a part of God’s family. We even acted out a Baptism, by taking on the role of different people present at this special sacrament! Thank you for bringing in mementos from your child’s baptism. The children are very eager to hear all about each others’ baptisms next week!
