Church School Commencement - 05/23/08

The parish marked the end of the Church School year with Commencement Exercises on May 18.

The coordinator of the program, Laura Coughlin, in her remarks to the community reminded us that the focus of this year was: The Parish as “Family.” 

While we all celebrate unity within our own families, we also belong to a greater family – that of the parish.  Here we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.  In addition to the regular lessons that the children followed this theme was present throughout the year.

As part of their parting gifts, each child received a picture frame where a photograph of the 2007-2008 Church School group will be placed and a small, live tree to remind them of the “family tree” of which they are a part.

Following the exercises the Friends and Family of the Church School sponsored a coffee hour, with the senior most children offering their parish family lakror (which they made the night before as part of their service project.
