We hope this blog post finds you enjoying a continued, blessed Easter season! At FCV we had our community celebration this past Tuesday, and what a wonderful celebration it was!
We spent most of Lent exploring Catholic Social Teaching, exploring how these principles can inform our service, community, and spirituality. The last principle we explored was "Solidarity." As a part of this community night, we decided on ways to practice solidarity with those who are poor, with those who lack dignity of work, who experience war, and with the earth and its precious resources. We came into Easter renewed with a sense of justice and charity for our community, those we work with, and the whole world.
To celebrate all we have learned and all the ways we have grown during Lent we celebrated Easter with a potluck. And while everything was tasty, we had to share a picture of the most amazing cake we've ever had, made by our FCVer, Brandon! Four layers of chocolate cake, with chocolate whipped filling and chocolate frosting!
Mmmm, S. Rose Mae and Michael enjoy their generous pieces:
We hope you also had a blessed Easter celebration with family and good food!
