Little Flower Fall 2014 Volunteer Registration

The Little Flowers is an organization whose goal is to provide young girls, PreK-4th grade, with an opportunity to gather and learn about their Catholic heritage, faith, and traditions. The program is centered around learning Catholic virtues through the lives of the saints, Scripture, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each virtue is represented with a saint, color, and flower, and a flower petal patch is given for completing activities for that virtue. The program is based upon “The Catholic Girl’s Guide,” edited by Fr. Francis X. Lasance and published by Benzinger Brothers in 1906. Within the section titled “The Maiden’s Wreath,” it outlined some virtues that a Catholic girl could develop in herself and ascribed these virtues to flowers as a symbol of their beauty and grace.

Last Spring, our Little Flowers started Wreath 3: Eutrapelia, Friendliness, Initiative, Organized/Orderliness, and Self-Control. This fall, we will cover the virtues of Responsibility, Patience, Cheerfulness, and Fortitude. Meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 2:15 - 3:30. PreK-2nd will meet twice for each virtue, and 3rd/4th will meet three times for each virtue. The fall retreat will be be a day of prayer, fellowship, and service.

Feel free to email or call with any questions.
