The kindergarten and seventh grade prayer partners from Presentation B.V.M. School, Cheltenham, met for the first time on the feast of the Guardian Angels, Oct. 2.
As the children spent time getting to know each other, they decorated an angel for their prayer partner. The expressions on the faces of the kindergartners and seventh graders alike vouched for the success of the school-wide program. They plan to get together periodically during the school year to work on various fun and prayerful activities.
Presentation B.V.M. School hopes the program will help to foster a positive spirit of helpfulness and Christian values.
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.
