Sixth Grade Prayer Service: Hierarchy of the Catholic Church

This morning, Mrs. LaPalme’s sixth grade class presented the Hierarchy of the Catholic Church to the school community.  The students began with the Pope and how one could become the Father of the Church.  Next, was the Cardinal, followed by the Arch Bishop and Bishop, Priests and Deacons and lastly the Lay people. Every title has unique roles within the church. Colors of the vestments were explained to the children and how they represent time during the year. Green is worn during ordinary time while Purple is worn during Advent and Lent.
