Earth Day Honoring

Hello, All you Earth Lovers!

Today, about 40 children and adults participated in an Earth Day event cleaning up our North Minneapolis neighborhood. After teams of children and volunteers worked for about two hours, we gathered in our Fremont back yard for an Earth Day Party. We tossed an inflated ‘earth ball’ around the circles and each person shared one part of Mother Earth he or she is grateful for….Some examples: Rivers, National and State Parks, worms, grass, Family…It went on and on! We then enjoyed a treat of cupcakes with blue frosting (for the water) and gummy fish, courtesy of Anna Dourgarian.

All in all it was a wonderful way to celebrate God’s Creation. The perfectly blue sky, sunny weather, and awakening lilacs and tulips made it a day to remember! May our children, as well as ourselves, learn a greater reverence for all of Creation….God’s gift to us….

Peace! Sr. Mary Frances and Crew
