Fun was had by all ages at Cedar Point and here are the pictures to prove it!
Today after Liturgy, these icons were blessed by Fr. Don and officially given to the children as their completed projects.
Congratulations on another successful year of Christian learning and stellar attendance!
Thank you to Popadia Donna for helping make sure we had all the materials we needed all year long and to our beloved Fr. Don for being such a rad Spiritual Father to all of us!
