Each person we encounter. Our parents, our siblings, our friends and classmates, those in our neighborhoods, those we barely know, strangers.
To give the girls a tangible way of expressing Love of Neighbor, we decided to make one of the badge activities into a group service project.
We colored additional pictures of our saint, St. Jane Frances de Chantal, and put them on paper grocery bags. Then, for a month or so, we have been collecting canned goods as a group. (This coincided very well with Lent and doubled as a lesson in almsgiving, too!) At some point in Lent, we will bring our collections to a local food shelf.
Simple cupcakes with red roses (this virtue’s flower) rounded out our meeting.
St. Jane Frances de Chantal, pray for us!
