We had our last RCIA meeting this past Saturday.
I had asked Sister a few weeks ago if I could bring a cake to share with everyone to thank the team and staff as well as congratulate all of us for becoming fully initiated catholics.
This is the cake I made and brought:
The lighting is really bad in this picture but it was all white and shimmery. Everyone seemed to like it too.
Without their knowledge I also made goodie bags for everyone. For Sister, Father, and D I made bigger, more personal bags for several reasons but since 2 of them are leaving the parish I wanted it to also be a going away gift.
The fun items that I included in every ones bags were: a Jesus band aid (we swear they heal faster than any other), scripture mints, bible verse fortune cookies, religious bookmark, religious magnet, and chocolate crosses I made.
It was sort of sad for this group to end. But it is exciting to see what the future will hold.
