Children’s saint procession for All Saint’s Day at Our Lady of Perpetual Help

To celebrate All Saint’s Day this year, all the children in the religious education program at our church (kindergarten to 8th grade) participated in a procession during Mass to demonstrate their favorite Saints. In my class for First Communicants that I’m co-teaching with Dottie Davis (James’ religious class teacher from last year), Judit chose to represent Saint Teresa of Calcutta and Cale chose Saint Francis of Assisi. Dottie and I helped them research and draw their Saints.

James’ favorite Saint is Saint Michael the Archangel.

Saint Michael the Archangel is the leader of all the angels and the army of God. He is the patron Saint of grocers, firefighters, police, soldiers, paratroopers, the sick and all those who work in dangerous jobs. Our children learned the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel during class yesterday.

Yesterday, our children also learned during class about the existence and nature of evil and about the protection of their guardian angels over them. They learned the prayer to their guardian angel.

Thank you for reading! May your guardian angel watch over you day and night.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.

    Hi Lam! David told me recently that you are helping to teach Sunday School. That is JUST WONDERFUL!! I couldn’t be prouder of you in your doing so. I so enjoyed reading your description of exactly what you’re teaching. So GREAT that you all are teaching the children about their guardian angel. Unfortunately, this isn’t emphasized in the Baptist tradition. Just discovered the following verse 3 years ago when preparing a lesson for our older children at Salt River Baptist church. Mathew 18:10 Jesus said, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father which is in heaven.” I was happily shocked to read this verse. I wish I had been told of this when David and Jonathan were little children. However, I’m thankful now to know this truth! Have a GREAT evening! Love and prayers, Mom
