Review of the Week:
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus cures the blind man. We celebrate the gift of seeing and our gift of faith in Jesus. At times, we are blinded and need to see the light, which is Jesus, to see God’s love and His unconditional love for us.
We also talked about the Catholic Social Teaching: Dignity of Workers and the Rights of Workers. Work is important as it helps people express their talents and potential. We met Fernando from El Salvador. He sells cookbooks on buses for $10 a day to support his family. He is a young father of two who dreams of becoming a businessman. Catholic Relief Services sponsors a program that trains young people in business. Fernando graduated from the program and is currently working on a new business plan. He also mentors other young people.
In writing this week, the kindergartners wrote an opinion paper. They had to pick if they liked popsicles or ice cream and write why. The kindergartners also worked in partners to draw and label about what happens during the springtime. Next week, we will be writing a spring poem.
