Religious Retreat

Ms. Burrito attended a religious retreat at their school and at the church last Saturday. This retreat was conducted to prepare the kids to their first reconciliation/confession. Prior to the retreat, they also attended extensive sessions regarding their upcoming confession. The catechist explained thoroughly to them what to do, what to expect, and what good confession will do to their spiritual/religious lives.
I miss attending retreats and recollections.  I used to do that when I was in college and when I was  working at a Catholic school back in my country.
Yesterday was their first communion, I'll make a separate post for it.  A very  memorable day in the Catholic  community as the Pope tendered his resignation due to his  declining health.

  13. kids today have so much to learn. they should also all go to an animal shelter and see the poor dogs that are going to be put to sleep because of over-breeding. then maybe they will never put a dog through that when they grow up

  20. I miss kids' activities in church! Pati na yung sa mga youths.. This reminds me of how much fun I had participating in all church activities, learning the Bible, growing up as a Christian, and building my personal relationship with God. I have been doing things like this for as long as I can remember.. Kaya nakaka-miss na kase it's a big part of who I've become now..

    Maganda talaga na habang bata pa, mamulat na talaga sila sa pagkilala sa Diyos at sa pag-serve sa Kanya.. =)
