Sunday at Parroquia San Cristóbal

I wanted to post these photos yesterday, but the internet access at la rectoria has been intermittent at best. I'm posting these from my office at the church.

The Kindergarten class from Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal visited with their families at the 10:30 am service. They sang a couple of songs before the offertory. One song involved many hand-motions and some jumping.

All the little ones came up for blessings during Communion.

Next Sunday we'll have another class and their families visit.

The Lovely Mona and I also went to lunch with our friend Michael Stanley, who's visiting from New York, and Tía Sue, a member of our extended family and a fellow missionary. Michael was in Panamá some seven years ago as a YASC (Young Adult Service Corp) missionary, teaching at Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal. Folks were very happy to see him on Sunday.

Loved the photos of the church service & coffee hour - I can feel it all in my heart of memories.
Hey that last photo looks like Napoli's - is it? Oh how I miss that pizza.

Padre Mickey said...

Yes, ma'am; that is Napoli's. Michael Stanley had the Bolas de carne con hongos pizza, Tía Sue had the Corvina al ajo, the Lovely Mona had the Ensalada Napoli, and I had the Chuleta parmigiana, just like Jesus ate.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Wonderful pictures. Beautiful people.

Where in the Gospel does it say that Jesus ate Chuleta parmigiana? Chapter and verse, please.

Mimi beat me to the punch! Yes, Lovely pictures, lovely people. I miss you guys!

Chuleta is usually pork. I am sure Jesus never ate pork.

And if it is veal, he would not eat that cruel meat either!

I See You!
