St. Bede parent ed class has a ‘blessed’ day

Fr. Greg Dongkore blesses parents and children at St. Bede in La Cañada with holy water from Lourdes.

Families attending the St. Bede the Venerable parent education program’s Wednesday multi-age class had a special day recently when Father Greg Dongkore, associate pastor, visited and blessed parents and children with holy water from Lourdes, France. Father Dongkore explained about St. Bernadette and the history of Lourdes and its miracles before blessing everyone with Lourdes’ holy water.

Parent Erika Close had brought in 60-year-old Lourdes’ holy water that Father Dongkore used in the blessing ceremony, which took place after parents and children prayed together during rug time.

The parent education program at St. Bede in La Cañada provides a side-by-side learning experience for parents and their preschool age children with an emphasis on faith and values. For more information, contact Jo Ann Gantus, director, at (818) 599-5261 or parented@bede.org.

Remains of Rebellion

Father Ed Benioff

Every generation in its turn is proud of its accomplishments — proud even to the point of arrogance. Usually we’re a lot more impressed than we ought to be. As we get older, if we are wise like King Solomon, we come to realize that “Nothing is new under the sun!”
