Don Tacke, 82½ year resident of the Camas Prairie, visited our Prairie ROCKS class on Monday. With wit and wisdom he shared his memories of life in the Church before Vatican II. He brought a picture of his wedding party, taken at the alter, in order to show the students what the communion rail looked like.
On Tuesday in class we took the opportunity to discuss the reasons for making changes in the liturgical prayers which will come into use during Advent of 2011. We also looked at the new wording and practiced saying the new responses.
We’re all looking forward to next week when Sam Lustig will be the speaker for Prairie ROCKS. She will be telling about her missionary experiences to Africa and Mexico. Community members are welcome to attend at 8:20 or 9:20 at the Prairie High School PEACE building.
