Today my sixth grader came home from school and she was amazed that none of the kids in her class at school knew how to find anything in the Bible. In her words, “many of them didn’t even know one book or how to look up the readings or anything”. The kids were kind of joking and saying I bet no one would be able to memorize the books of the Bible and she kind of quietly said, “I did.” Of course they didn’t believe her until she started reciting them.
The important thing here is that she goes to a Catholic school and many of the kids in her class have been there since Kindergarten. I thought this was a great tribute to Family Formation and it’s one more thing that made me thankful for our fabulous church and program.
