On 20 August, Sr. Florence organised an afternoon in the kindergarten for children from the parish. The afternoon was called “Book Party”! Each child was invited to bring along a favourite book and tell the others why they liked it. Then their attention was turned to another book: the Bible. They spent time searching for Scripture quotations, and colouring pictures of same. The also prayed the Rosary together, and had time to play and eat!
