Saint Clare

The kids in Mrs. Meyer’s 3rd class have been learning about Saint Clare and how she gave her life to God.  She gave everything she owned away, helped many people hear God’s call, and women joined her on her mission and called themselves the “Poor Clares.”  As a class, we have held discussions of what she had done during her life and how we could be more like her in our own daily lives.  The kids each made a drawing of different things that they could do to be more like Saint Clare.

La Epifanía del Señor – The Epiphany of the Lord

El 7 de enero celebramos la solemnidad de la Epifanía del Señor y la Bendición del Hogar. La Epifanía es la manifestación de Jesús como el Mesías de Israel, el Hijo de Dios y el Salvador del mundo. La gran fiesta de la Epifanía celebra la adoración de Jesús por parte de los sabios (magos) de Oriente que llevan regalos de oro, incienso y mirra. En muchas áreas, es costumbre bendecir nuestros hogares en este día.

On January 7 we celebrate the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord and the Blessing of the Home.  The Epiphany is the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel, Son of God and Savior of the world. The great feast of Epiphany celebrates the adoration of Jesus by the wise men (magi) from the East bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.  In many areas, it’s customary to bless our homes on this day.
