Remembering Saints and Souls


Day of the Dead (Mexico)

day-of-dead dayofdeadaltar

We talked about the Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) a Mexican Celebration of all the souls that died. They set up an “altar” with a statue of Mary, flowers, and pictures of loved ones that have passed. We did the prayer service above and each student remembered someone from his or her family that has died.

Handout for Halloween, All Saints and All Souls Days:


We just came back from the Missionaries of the Poor.



A couple of weeks ago, we talked about Noah and the flood, Abram and Sarah and their son Issac.

  • God made a covenant(a sacred promise) with Noah:

rainbow-covenantGenesis 9:15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and every living creature—every mortal being—so that the waters will never again become a flood to destroy every mortal being.

  • God made a covenant with Abram and changed his name to Abraham:


    Abraham and Issac

Genesis 17:5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I am making you the father of a multitude of nations.

Genesis17:7 I will maintain my covenant between me and you and your descendants after you throughout the ages as an everlasting covenant, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you…. and I will be their God.

“I will be your God if you will be my people”

God still makes that covenant with us today.

  • Abraham’s son, Issac married Rebbecca. The had two sons Esau and Jacob. Esau was a hunter and good cook, Jacob was a Shepherd of Sheep. Jacob inherited the land and rights of his father Isaac.
  • Jacob, (also known as “Israel”), had 12 sons. They would be the 12 tribes of the nation Israel.12 Sons of Jacob

Jacob married Leah and Rachel. Their sons were: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin, Dan, Asher
