A Pumpkin Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

For our Halloween cell this year we made an insanely detailed Cinderella carriage pumpkin!

Aside from discovering some mad pumpkin carving skills and the deliciousness of roasted pumpkin seeds, we learned more about the saints through an "All Saints Bingo" activity. Who knew St. Clare of Assisi was the patroness of television (because toward the end of her life, when she was too ill to attend Mass, an image of the service would display on the wall of her cell) or that St. Francis of Assisi once preached to hundreds of birds and that they stood still as he walked among them, only flying off when he said they could leave? 

It was a fun night of pumpkin carving, warm foods that had the warm flavour of fall, bejeweled Bingo cards, and several rounds of Heads Up.

Hope everyone finds a way to make their Halloween this year spook-tastic and treat-iful. Happy Halloween!
