On May 12, 2018, the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother in Valencia had a get-together with boys and girls. There were about 25 children in total. The boys spent the time with the Servant Brothers who are also here in Valencia.
The get-together was all about Our Lady because it is the month of May. We started at 11:15am with a game where we had to be Our Lady's knights. Later we made a craft: a flower made out of balloons to give to Our Lady. When we had finished, we went out into the convent’s patio to pray the Rosary with Our Mother. The Sisters had prepared a platform to carry the statue of Mary on during the Rosary, and which was where we put our flowers. We prayed the Rosary and sang songs to Our Lady walking around the convent.
After the Rosary, we got ready for lunch. Following that, we had a cooking workshop to make peanut butter and chocolate cookies. Then we had time to reflect with the girls about Our Lady of Fatima, since the next day would be her feast day. This reflection, especially the example of the shepherd children who Our Lady appeared to, helped the girls a lot. We ended the get-together at 4:00pm.
We thank Our Lady for being such a good Mother.
