Church School 

October 2021 Activities


Our Sunday School students continue to learn the Our Father Prayer. One of our Sunday School goals is to learn Biblical prayers by heart over this school year. On Sunday, October 17th the Gospel reading was Mark 10:42 “Lording it over others”. One of our students read the Gospel and we had a brief discussion. Our craft for the day was decorating ornaments for the Giving Tree. We all had fun with crayons, stickers, and gems. We will continue to make ornaments for the next few weeks. The Giving Tree is a way for community charities to request specific gifts for their families. There will be a Christmas Tree in the back of the church with ornaments decorated by the Sunday school students. On the back of each ornament is a gift request and the due date. Our generous parishioners kindly fulfill the request and deliver them to different organizations. There will be a full post in the upcoming Bell Newsletter and November Weekly Email Blasts. The Giving Tree is Saint Mary the Virgin's opportunity to help our neighbors. Organizations we have supported in the past through the Giving Tree included A-Home, Neighbors Link, San Andres Episcopal Church, Open Door Family Medical Center, Hope’s Door, and Hour Children’s Center at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility.
