Photos by Jane WinsteadFather Tim celebrated the first Children's Mass of the school year on August 26. His homily referred from the Gospel reading Matthew 24:42-51.
Father Tim had several masks to show the children. He said that we could put one (happy) mask on, but in reality we might not be happy or feel happy or sometimes we wear a mask so we can hide behind the mask, so we do not show our true selves.
As we read in the gospel, that is being hypocritical. Father Tim's message to the children was be authentic, be true to yourself.
After Mass, the children sang Happy Birthday to Father Tim.
