He went through each vestment and why certain colors are worn at certain times. Dominic told me today that he and his friend Thomas were going to start wearing shirts the color that coincides with that day's liturgical color. They wanted a calendar to so they keep track of what color to wear.

Field Trip-St. Peter's Catholic Church with Fr. Schultes
Our homeschool group took a field trip on Friday to tour certain aspects of St. Peter's Church. Fr. Schultes led the tour and explained many of the sacramentals you see in church, but aren't quite sure of their purpose or function. The kids learned so much. Dominic mentioned several times how much he learned and enjoyed the field trip. He commented several times how he hadn't known why certain items where placed about the church. I later told John how powerful the role of priest can play in the lives of children. For a pretty intellectual field trip, the kids all sat perfectly still and listened as Father explained about the chalice, purificator, sanctuary light, and other important parts of our Catholic faith.
