I had a tiny class this year (we have two different classes for some of the grades.) But the second grade class was really full.
When I get settled down, I hope to get really involved with my new parish.
I am surely going to miss the parish where I am at. We just got our new church opened. Beautiful. The crucifix has a 5 foot corpus! The tabernacle, against the wall behind the altar is large and gorgeous. The altar is handsome and contains a relic of the Cure of Ars, which I just found out about. St. John Vianney is one of my favorite saints. Our old chapel, which was supposed to be temporary, had chairs and no kneelers, but was carpeted, and we kneeled on the floor. It's so nice to have kneelers and pews. There is the most beautiful statue of St. Joseph and the child Jesus there and a lovely statue of Our Lady of Grace.
It's a great example of how one can build a devout church with modern materials. I am going to take my digital camera there soon and take some pictures.
I will miss this and our pastor, who is conservative, young, witty, and an excellent teacher a lot.
He put a no liturgical dance logo on the parish's webpage:
website needs to be updated, but it has pictures of the construction of the church.
Where are you moving to, KAC?
Second grade is always full! I don't have one in 2nd grade this year :-).
