St. Martin of Tour – Nov. 11

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

November 11: Blessed Feast of St. Martin of Tours. This day is one of our favorites to observe. We are reminded of ways to love our neighbors, we pray for our veterans.

Reformation Sunday

Sunday, November 15th, 2020

October 25: Reformation Sunday. All month in October we spend some time reading about Martin Luther and the Reformation. It’s always such a festive day.

Esther, as our 3rd grader this year, received a cover for her new Bible, I made our annual big German meal with Schnitzel, Karottensalat and SpƤtzle and Lily made Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Bundt cake…it was amazing.

The Feast of St. Michael

September 27: This Sunday we observe the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels (Sep 29.) This feast day really kicks off the Fall season in my mind. I love talking about God’s warriors, messengers and guardians with the babies. The great battle in Heaven and the defeat of Satan. What a story, a real story for them to learn.

May 9: It’s still Easter. Our Kantor had the idea to put together a ‘virtual choir.’ Our kiddos played bells and there were many other great contributions. I love this!
