I attended the special mass held at St. Joseph the Worker church yesterday intended for the second graders who just had their first communion on the first Sunday of the month. My daughter was part of the choir who sung songs during the mass.
I love it that the kids are being trained at a very early age. This really helps build up their confidence and also shake off that stage fright that a lot of people has.
The little Mister was one of the readers during the mass. It makes me really happy that both of our children are very active in participating in school activities. That's one of the many perks that I get to enjoy being a stay at home mom, I get to witness every event that my kids has in school.
The students have donated some loaves of bread and some grape juice for the bread basket which will be given to charity in town. I love this kind of acts, it teaches kids to give to other people and share what they have.
The parish priest in our church is a Filipino, he's very nice. He mentioned before that his parish in the Philippines is also a St. Joseph which I find amazing because the parish in my home town is also St. Joseph. Anyway, it was a a nice celebration for the kids.
