Celebrating the Feast of St. Andrew
November 30th was the feast day of St. Andrew. Father Sam from our community parish of St. Andrew the Apostle invited all the staff and children to a feast day celebration. Everyone celebrated the Eucharist together at 11am and then Father hosted a pizza and juice party in the church hall. The Catholic School Council provided delicious cupcakes for dessert.
Father spoke to the children about St. Andrew. His name is Greek meaning “strength” and Andrew spent most of his ministry in Greece spreading the lessons Jesus taught him. St. Andrew was the brother of St. Peter who was the frist pope in Rome. St. Andrew is remembered as the first leader of the Greek Church.
At the conclusion of the Eucharistic celebration the children, teachers and parents joined in singing “Happy Feast Day to You.”
