Students had a wonderful treat on October 30, when they, with students from other Oakland school were invited by the St. Francis in the Schools group to Christ the Light Cathedral. There they had a beautiful concert on the life of St. Francis. After that they were escorted to Lakeside Park, where an Umbrian-style festival awaited them. Games, story-telling, face-painting and flower-arranging were on the afternoon schedule, after a homemade, delicious lunch was served.
Volunteers put together 20,000 stems, including orchids, for the event. Young children arranged flowers in baskets, which were labeled to take home.
