We changed up when we go to church now. When the parishes changed their times we figured that the only option was still Sunday mornings, but now they were at 8am at Saint Mark’s. While I had no aversion to going to St. Mark’s it just wasn’t Sacred Heart which has been our home and was actually across the street from my home growing up. So, once the Summer was over we were able to go back to Sacred Heart. It is a different time for everyone to come to Mass but it looks to be working out so far and we enjoy being back.
It is good too because I learned that the 3 churches will be starting up a Youth Group and I would like to help out as a volunteer for that. In college I had studied Youth Ministry at a local retreat house called Emmaus House and was very near to getting certified as a Youth Minister. I stopped because of my studies and other reasons but I think it is time to put that knowledge to use to help out our parishes and kids.
We received the Unicorn Build A Bot from Relevant Play for Free to review and add to our Holiday Gift Guide. Opinions are our own.
These totally cute pets offer an enchanting way to build, assemble, and learn about STEM robotics. There’s an adorable Unicorn, Kitten, and Dalmatian to choose from. They’re not just cute they are a STEM learning experience. When you put together the robots the instructions teach you about levels and machines and more. The toys also have see-through parts where you can observe the motors running and see how parts move. You can see the toy in action in my video below.
