Sister's Summer School Catechism


It's summer and Sister is NOT happy. It seems the diocese has decided to offer a summer school catechism course for those students who weren’t paying attention all year. Instead of three relaxing weeks at the motherhouse, Sister is stuck with her students this summer! And summer is already rough enough for Sister – try wearing 50 pounds of gabardine in 90-degree heat! Sister will discuss such questions as, “Did Jesus have to go to summer school? Or “What is an appropriate summer vacation for a practicing Catholic?” And she’s sure to talk about the best way to make use of what’s left of your summer vacation. Beat the heat with Sister this summer, and if you know what’s good for you, don’t be late!
