Blessing and Planting of the Bulbs 2014

15516293460_cf91e3d546_z

Once every year, the students of Saint Francis Academy bless and plant bulbs in honor of archangels. In the spring, the children marvel at how these small bulbs have become such beautiful flowers.

All around the perimeter of our school, the bulbs are planted in a small crevice by the children, and before their eyes, flowers have sprung by the time of Spring. The children with their gleaming smiles and eagerness are shown throughout the gallery of photographs graciously taken by students and faculty.

Every year we do this as a small treat for the students, not only to simply plant a bulb, but to witness the power of God’s creation and how it comes about before their own eyes.
