Atrium with Mrs. Plackowski . . .
In the past couple weeks your children have been contemplating the Kingdom of God. They listened to the parables of the hidden treasure (Matthew 13:44) and the growing seed (Matthew 4:26-29). Mrs. Plackowski then encouraged the children to ponder how these parables relate to the Kingdom of God. They were asked to think about what Jesus was trying to tell us about the Kingdom of God through these parables.
In the gestures area children have been practicing preparing the cruets of water and wine. They were also introduced to the term “epiclesis” (the gesture and prayer the priest performs during Mass to consecrate the bread and wine).
