They learned about the Sacrament of Holy Orders (when a priest is ordained) and got to play “dress-up” to become familiar with the names and significance of liturgical vestments worn by a priest.

Porcupines, hawks, tortoises, lizards, oh my!! The excitement of the Philadelphia Zoo came to NFA today for 3 age-appropriate assemblies, each featuring 4 live animal ambassadors. We met Flora-- a North American porcupine, Shenandoah “Shen” the hawk--a beautiful and very large bird of prey, Meg the red-footed tortoise from the Amazon, and finally Boris, a legless lizard most resembling a snake. Thanks to our Zoo expert, Adinah Greene, we had a wonderful time learning about wildlife, animal habits, and conservation.
