SIGN OF PEACE
laura
We at Little Flower Parish are aware that this time of year there is the spread of flu and disease. We respect and encourage those members of our community who would prefer not to shake hands during the sign of peace. A smile, wave, or bow of the head are sufficient ways to offer peace to your neighbor. We pray for your good health and safety during these winter months.

This year as we celebrated the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception – the feast day of our IHM Sisters - Monsignor Vaghi blessed our new stained glass windows. To commemorate these beautiful additions to our school building, each student received a Christmas ornament with a picture the IHM center window. This window has the beautiful globe logo which celebrates the mission and ministry of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary around the world. If you haven't seen the windows yet, please do come by to see them!

Our Buddy Groups worked on a special activity to promote spreading kindness. It was a project modeled after The Kindness Rocks Project. We decorated painted rocks with kind words to place around our community.

The students brought their rock home and were encouraged to choose a spot to place it.

Have you seen any around Bethesda?
