Jesus Day! a mini-retreat for First Communicants

Katherine joined the CCD children of our parish for a mini-retreat called Jesus Day!

She is the blonde in the light blue jeans in the front row.

They had different stations where they played a beanbag toss game, colored a beach ball, made a necklace with colored beads for Jesus, Made a fun foam cross and practiced what they will do in Mass when receiving their First Eucharist!

Fr. Matt came for the Meal Blessing and a slice of pizza.

As we were leaving, Katherine stepped on a bee.

So we stopped at Target for some benadryl.

She was fine. I was mostly worried because I'm allergic to stinging insects! and the last thing I wanted was her to have an allergic reaction and spend the night in the hospital.

Then we were on our way home, after a quick stop at Michaels for some sticky letters, to work on the banner that will hang on the end of the pew our family sits in.
