Yesterday at our LifeNight we started out with doing an Ignation Exam prayer where we meditated on the past week and what we are truly grateful for- then we got to have some fun with Arts and Crafts!
The Liturgy Commission has invited all of OLG to participate in their Advent focus this year. In keeping with the year’s focus of gratitude, they are posing the question : "What are you bringing to the manger?” There will be an empty manger in the commons and small “gift boxes” available in which to put a note of gratitude. The “gift” will then be placed in the manger.
While they do have many boxes already "made", they hope each family will take the template home and make a family project out of it, and bringing it back the next week. You can color the cruciform shape, cut it out and tape it up! What a great activity to do right after Thanksgiving! We want to fill the manger with gratitude! It will then be placed in the baptistery during Christmastide. I want to encourage you to duplicate the pattern (attached) and perhaps work on this at home just like we did during LifeNight!
ANNNND to close up the night we played a bunch of new games- in the hope that everyone would stop trying to get us to play Sardines for the 38741093465134956093847589 time ;)
Thank you to all who came, and we can't WAIT to see you all next week, so we can DECORATE THE FRASSATI ROOM for CHRISTMAS!
