Child and Youth Religious Exploration

Last week, the RE classes learned about some Epiphany traditions around the world such as leaving out hay for the camels and being crowned king/queen of the party for finding the toy baked into the King’s cake. Next week, we’ll explore diversity and learn more about the life and philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
