The 7th and 8th grade students were thrilled to welcome Father Ben into our classroom today to discuss many different topics. Father discussed and modeled the vestments he wears at Mass. He explained every part in detail. Father also discussed different prayers he recites during Mass and the purpose for these particular prayers. In addition, he retold the Passion giving an excellent account of the events leading to Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. He was gracious enough to stay a little longer to answer all the questions from the students. Below are some pictures of Father showing his vestments to the class.
