All year the central focus of the older kids studies at Saint Augustine's Homeschool Enrichment Program has been medieval history. After Mass we celebrated their hard work with a medieval festival.
The festivities were kicked off with the St. Augustine's Schola performance of sacred music. The children sang beautifully. More than one parent was moved to tears at the loveliness of these children's musical voices.

As the festival continued, Kevin demonstrated the proper way for medievals to eat.

We are so proud of the work and effort by the children this year. They have had an amazing opportunity to be part of this program and we are immeasurably grateful to the stellar tutors, the Russells who began St. A.'s and are the heart and soul of it, Fr. Gerald for his generous support and for the brilliant, devout, lovely families we have come to know there. Huzzah!
