This past Sunday was Kellenberg’s 25th annual Communion Breakfast for all families of the Latin School and Freshman class. The morning began with Mass celebrated by Father Tom. The liturgy featured beautiful singing by the Jubilee Choir led by Mrs. Fraoley. Father Tom’s excellent homily talked about how we should prepare for the Easter season. He used the letters, A, B, and C to show what we must do these last two weeks of Lent; Admit who we are, Bring a friend to church, and Celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ. Many students participated in some form throughout the Mass. Freshman students helped as Ushers and by leading everyone in the Communion Meditation. Communion was distributed by members of the senior class who serve as Eucharistic Ministers. At the conclusion of the Mass, Mr. O’Brien led all in the singing of the Salve Regina.
In the beginning of the second trimester, freshman students were assigned a scripture project consisting of 10 timelines of the Old Testament. This project is taken very seriously and each student put a tremendous amount of effort into it. The students went above and beyond in creativity with their projects, which were displayed in the lobby. Before entering into the second part of the morning’s celebration., everyone was able to view the variety of projects on display around the lobby including scrapbooks, scrolls, and even life size prophets!
The idea that Kellenberg is “One Big Family” was quite evident with the wonderful turn out of students, faculty, and family. During the breakfast, students were presented awards for their outstanding videos, songs, raps, poems, and essays, which highlighted the themes of faith and their experiences at Kellenberg Memorial in honor of the school’s 25th anniversary. The morning concluded with a performance by senior Frantz Jean singing his song “Taste and See” and students from Mrs. Zider’s music class singing “I Lift My Hands” and “Amazing Grace” by Chris Tomlin.
The communion breakfast was a wonderful way to celebrate the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ and enjoy some delicious food too!
