Dressed as pilgrims and Native Americans, the kindergarten students of St. Joseph/St. Robert School in Warrington celebrated their first Thanksgiving together in the school Nov. 27. The students recited poems and sang songs of Thanksgiving for invited guests.
Meanwhile, older students of the school decorated more than 100 holiday shopping bags to bring cheer to elderly people residing in retirement communities. The residents enjoy using these bags as they do their holiday shopping.
Shown below are enthusiastic fifth grade students displaying their decorated holiday shopping bags. From left are Grace Moffett, Ryan Landry, Lauren Scott, Joseph Horan and Samantha Waltrich.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
