Yesterday the Second Grade students of Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal (and their families) worshipped with us at la Misa en 10:30 a.m. There were a lot of kids! As usual, they gave a short Presentation just before the Offertory. One student recited a poem, and then two students held up a sign which reads: En la iglesia todos somos importantes (in the church everyone is important). As a classmate read a list of different people in the church, students came up to portray them: lectors, sick visitors, prayer group folk, etc. It was very cute. THEN the entire class came up (a scene of incredible chaos!) and recited some Bible verses, followed with a song. Their parents went wild. We also had a lot of blessings before Communion.
Today (lunes) is Padre Cáceres' birthday, so he received his Birthday Blessing.
