Sadly we never actually saw Pickle. I know that sounds crazy but we all drove separately. He was in front with his class and the older kids were the teachers so they had to walk a little to check on things and would catch up with us.
The parish gets all these kids to together and then blesses them as the parish offers to pray for them and their faith journey. This is such a beautiful tradition. These 15/16 year olds are truly growing in their faith as they prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation. The parish is behind them.
After the teens left for class and the rest of us were treated to a talk from one of my favorite speakers. Go Gomer!
