Garden Center Visit For November
Fr. John told the story of the Good Samaritan. How a priest and a Levite passed by a man who was robbed and
badly beaten, but failed to show him any compassion. Finally, a Samaritan stops and helps the injured man. The Samaritan’s
mercy is an example of how Jesus wants us to treat each other.
Fr. John said to be close to Jesus we must show compassion and mercy to others.
Janet once again, entertained us with her Thanksgiving Poem.
Talk of Thanksgiving plans and snacks ended our visit.

This Sunday following Liturgy, Fr. Paul gathered the children together and explained to them the parable of

The sermon was well received by the children and adults alike.
