Mrs. Gunther connects our Last Supper with the Seder Meal.

6th Grade Seder

March 20, 2018  

This week 6th grade learned some Church history and Jewish roots by participating in a Seder meal in class.  When Mrs. Gunther shared this with me I was so excited.  Seder meals are full of symbolism and history.  I participated in a Seder meal during college with my college-age young adult group at Christ the King in Athens, Ohio.  Our parish collaborated with the college Jewish group to learn about it.  What a learning experience!  

Mrs. Gunther's ability to bring ancient history and church history alive is such a blessing!  This is such a great lesson for students during this Lenten season.  I am providing some links below if anyone would like to learn more about Catholics and Seder meals.  (for the record: these are my links, not provided by Mrs. Gunther.)
