On Sunday, November 20, the Parent Education Committee (PEC) continued its tradition of hosting a Mass specifically for the mothers of Oakcrest students. Fr. Ron and Fr. Diego celebrated Mass with beautiful music led by the Lucas family. Before going to a scrumptious feast prepared by Pam Kelly, the mothers were given the chance to meet our new Assistant Chaplain, Fr. Diego.
After an opportunity for refreshments, Oakcrest mom Jean Beatty inspired us with her talk on “Strong Women in the New Testament.” She zeroed in on Faith, Fortitude, and Prayer as things we can learn from woman as diverse as Anna and Mary. Thank you to the many members of the PEC who worked so hard to make the day special for our mothers!
Be sure to put this day on your radar next year so you too can enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Oakcrest mothers and get a few ideas for your spiritual life! As Father Diego reminds us, even on airplanes they teach you to put your oxygen mask on first so you can help the others. As mothers it is imperative that we do likewise in our spiritual life.
