ROCKERs Philippines October 7 “Workshop” with My Masterpiece Movement

Posted by ROCKERs servant Teachermama Tina

Thank You Lord for the wonderful teacher-artists from My Masterpiece Movement, especially Mommy Anna, who offered to hold an interactive multi-arts storytelling workshop/performance for our small group of Catholic homeschoolers (ROCKERs!) We all had so much fun – praise God too for the generous Medela Moms Beng and Maricel, who hosted the activity (again!) at the Medela House.

The kids and I (and Ate Lyn!) went early so we could prepare the place. We rode the FX and LRT to Gilmore station and walked to the Medela House. It was pretty tiring because I was carrying a backpack with my not-so-light laptop in it, plus wearing Rysse in front with my Next 9 pouch (I SO love the convenience of babywearing! hehe!).

Anyway, we had fun setting up. I am/we are trying to teach the kids consistently about the concept of service / serving others by helping out, doing chores, etc.

They also had so much fun playing while waiting for the others to arrive, I was a bit nervous that they’d prefer staying in the designated “kids’ play room” rather than joining the workshop. Hehe. Thank God I was wrong to feel so!

Maricel kindly prepared a few toys and books for the kids to play with during idle time.

Sharing is caring!

To make a long story short, the afternoon was AWESOME! 🙂 Filled with fun, story-songs, dancing, singing and even being quiet! 😉

You can view more photos of the activity here and here.

THANKS AGAIN, TEACHER ANNA AND THE TEAM FROM MY MASTERPIECE MOVEMENT! More blessings upon us all!

Ideas for Celebrating The Feast Day of St. (San) Lorenzo Ruiz, Filipino Saint and Martyr

This is a repost from Teachermama Tina’s blog 🙂

It is St. Lorenzo Ruiz’s Feast Day today (Sept 28). Since it is still flooded outside due to Typhoon Pedring (which seems to have “calmed down” a bit, thank you for joining us in prayer!) I thought I’d try to come up with a post on how to celebrate his Feast Day. (Since I can’t find one on Google! haha!)

But first, here is some information about the St. Lorenzo, or San Lorenzo Ruiz, as he is fondly called by Filipinos everywhere:

Lorenzo Ruiz is the first Filipino saint. He is also the first Filipino martyred for the Christian Faith. Lorenzo Ruiz was a layman, married, and had two sons and a daughter. Born in Binondo, Manila, about 1600’s, he was educated in the school of the Dominicans there. He served as an altar boy and later was a helper and clerk-sacristan in the church of Binondo. He was a member of the Confraternity of the Rosary.
