The Kindergarten and First Graders were the ones in-charged for the All Saint's day celebration at St. Joseph Church. My son was very excited because he was one of the readers at the mass and he also brought the bread at the altar during the offertory rites. I asked my husband to go to his work later that day because he kept missing our son's involvement in school so he did. I am glad that he attended because it made our son very proud of what he can do. Here are the photo I took last Friday.
The kindergarten and First Graders have to wear either a saint costume or an angel costume. My son is wearing a St. Joseph costume. Below are some snapshots during the offertory procession as the children brings the saint banner for their classes.
It is a joy to watch the little kids acts like adults in the ceremony. I salute those teachers who patiently teaches the kids for these. I like it that they train the kids at an early age to build their self confidence.
After the mass, we got to take a group picture of them.
I remember when my son first did this when he was in Kindergarten, my husband was not there so he was a bit bummed out. He did great but this time, he did even better knowing that his Dad was with me. I think that father figure is very important for the kid's development. I think that, it is one role that we can not do as Moms, the father figure to our children's life.
