This week..the children learned about Mardi Gras, (Fat Tuesday/Pancake Day/Paczki Day), and Ash Wednesday. The children were treated to a King Cake and Paczki. They selected which one they wanted to try and voted “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”. They had fun trying them both. The children also made Mardi Gras mask. One of the children started a joke about his “mustache”, and soon we were all trying out different mustaches and voices to go along with them. They had so much fun! Wednesday, we attended Ash Wednesday Mass to mark the start of Lent. Over the next few weeks, we will focus on ways to pray, and praying for our families.
Have a safe weekend. Let this Lenten season help us to focus on the word of God and refresh our spiritual journey.
