This past Sunday, Pastor Augustin preached on the week’s lectionary readings, which were also for “Good Shepherd Sunday“.

After the Holy Communion, we took the time to pray a special blessing for the mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, mothers-in-law, godmothers and all who played a “motherly” role in our church family.

We invited them forward and then invited the children and youth to stand behind them.

Then, together, we prayed for them and blessed them.

Each one then received a small gift from the church.

Happy Mother’s Day – be blessed: you are more than you may realize!
