Today we talked about the Democratic Republic of the Congo in our Geography portion of the class that I taught. I decided that I would wear the outfit made for me in that country. Deacon Simon Kipiti had it made for me when he went home to share the pictures of his diaconate ordination with his friends and family back home. Deacon Simon (soon to be ordained a priest) told us so much about his native country that I enjoyed sharing it with the kiddos. I loved being able to wear a little bit of the Congolese Catholic culture.
The kids thought it was crazy that I even wore the dress out to lunch after. It really is a very comfortable dress.
