These are some comments from Gerti from Austria:
Regarding “Sacraments of the Catholic Church – Bulletin Board for Gr.2-5” from Gerti: “Thank you! Great Idea! It would be nice to have this and others of your great ideas also in German! Thanks, once more and God bless you! Best wishes from Gerti” and regarding resource “Miracle Jesus Calls Peter To Walk on Water for Gr.3 and 4” from Gerti: “Thank you! What a great idea for folding the boat. My students will like it! Best wishes, Gerti”
Here is a wonderful exchange between Sisters Judiann and Jeannette and a teacher in England during the pandemic lockdown:
“Hello. Sending love and blessings from the UK in London (in lockdown!). I hope you are all well, safe and able to access enough food and supplies. Your crafts are absolutely brilliant. I am a Sunday School teacher here and we are working to provide teaching remotely for our children. We are hoping to produce a 30-40 minute film each Sunday for young children, with a Bible story, talk, prayer, worship, etc. Plus I would then demonstrate a craft. Initially this will just be for our own church (St Michael’s Chester Square) but we would love for our children to share this with other children as there is very little being done in this area for children during this period of lockdown and quarantine. Would it be acceptable to you if I use any of your crafts for this? They are, by far, the most interesting (and still simple!) crafts that I have come across. I look forward to hearing from you.
With love Francesca
Judiann and Jeannette gave Francesca their permission and this is her response to them:”Thank you for this lovely, gracious reply. I shall ensure that everybody knows from where these crafts have come. You have a true gift for this creative work. I spend a LOT of time looking for crafts exactly like these and, truthfully, yours are the best I’ve found. You are blessing many children through this work. Thank you for praying for us. Be assured that you will be in my prayers too. With my love, Francesca”

It was great to find an Advent wreath craft that was easy to do; most that I’ve seen are too complicated and frustrating for students. This was a fun activity even for older kids and they especially liked creating the “wreath” part. Carrie M.
