Clothed in Humility

The Buds gathered for a March meeting to focus on the virtue of humility.  Our saint for this meeting was the beautiful and humble St. Catherine Laboure.

We began, as always, with a coloring page of our saint as we waited for all our friends to arrive.  We were unable to meet in our usual place, so the Buds had fun spreading themselves out on the gym floor to color!

We worked on our prayer card in the gym as well.  Our prayer card included the image of St. Catherine Laboure in her habit and a simple prayer on the back:

I am here.
Tell me what
would have me do.

These prayer cards were added to our binders, along with the coloring pages.

For our main activity, we were able to move back into the cafeteria, although we stayed on the floor! 

Because we were discussing humility, we used the Bible verse from Year One:
I Peter 5:5-6
"Clothe yourself in all humility."

We discussed humility and modesty in our dress, making modesty shrugs from a bandanna or scarf.  They turned out very cute and some of the Buds even continued to wear them to school during the week!

Here we are...hard at work!

And here we are wearing some of the finished shrugs.

They are cutest from the back!

Our whole group of Beautiful Buds...

from the front

and the back!

And what could be cuter than these cookies?

(I suppose the servers are!)

Mrs. A outdid herself again!


Keep planting seeds...
