Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux

Rebekah participated in a special procession and mass to celebrate the Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux.  It was a wonderful experience, not only for her, but the whole family, and the community that gathered as well. The girls were dressed as St. Therese and her sisters. Other children represented her parents. 

The children were all so reverent, and very well tempered 
considering the 90* temps and layers of habit. 

One look back before heading out in the procession. My sweeet babiest girl.

After the mass and refreshments, we enjoyed a little pilgrimage to the outdoor shrine.

The kids love doing the "walk of saints" on the beautiful grounds at the 
Shrine of St. Theresa in Nasonville

My "tough girl", Hannah, teaching her baby brother the stations of the cross, and saying prayers with him. She is the best sister to all of her siblings. They melt my heart.
