During Prairie Faith Formation class the students are often asked questions such as: “Who is somebody you really look up too?” or “Who is a person that comes to mind when you think of the virtue of ______?” (add any virtue in the space provided) or “Who is somebody that you see as holy?” Nine times out of ten, the students respond with the same answer: Debbie Chicane.
Debbie, Youth Minister for the Tri-Parish, was the speaker at our Prairie ROCKS class last Monday. She told the students a bit about her life as she was growing up. This upbringing provided her with a rock solid foundation for building her enthusiasm for the Catholic faith as an adult. Her deep love for Christ, the Church and our youth is evident in every word she speaks.
As she grew up, Debbie’s family had a deep devotion to the Blessed Mother and the rosary. October 7 was the Feast of our Lady of the Rosary, so our class has been taking time to learn about the rosary. Each class made a Jeopardy board containing 48 questions having to do with the rosary. We will play the game in class on Monday and the winner will receive a prize!
We are looking forward to our next speaker, Sarah Walsh, who will join us on Tuesday, October 18.
