Mrs. Pam Basler and the Valle Catholic 2nd Graders planned a Mothers Day Mass on May 8, 2015. Mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, or any special woman in the lives of our students were invited to celebrate Mass together.
The 2nd Graders filled all the liturgical roles. Commentator was Trey Metzger; Readers: Amara Basler and Ava Meyer; Petitions: Carter Viox and Austin Ringwald. Gift bearers: Ethan Ottens and Aubrey Wolk. Father Greg Klump celebrated the Mass assisted by Pastor, Father Dennis Schmidt and Deacon John Meere.
Lydia Klump and Parker Esparza recited this blessing for their moms/grandmas/guests:
We ask Jesus to shower many blessings on all the moms in the world. By giving Jesus such a gentle and kind person as Mary to care for Him, it tells us how important God thought mothers were.
Bless my mom’s eyes that she may see all the love around her. Bless my mom’s lips that she may speak only words of truth and wisdom. Bless my mom’s ears that she will listen to God’s holy words. Bless my mom’s feet that she will not tire of serving her family. Bless my mom’s hands that she will touch with kindness everyone she meets. Bless my moms thoughts that she will think happy thoughts …and bless my mom’s patience that she will always be patient with me.
Altar Servers were Drew Metzger, Ashlyn Klump, and Reese Metzger. Before leaving for VHS Field Day, the Senior Choir and Al Keiser provided the music.
Following the Mass Dr. Gilligan acknowledged the long service of the Valle retirees and thanked them for their steadfast commitment and tireless dedication to Valle and all it represents. These retirees are Ms. Sara Menard, Mrs. Mary Boyer, Mrs. Jackie Uding, Mrs. Mary Okenfuss, and Deacon John Meere.
