Prayers for the Dead:

At the 2nd half of the RCIA, and also at the Queen of Angels Group at Corpus Christi, I told people the importance of praying for the dead. I told them the 3 stories I posted yesterday.

This afternoon @ the Queen of Angels Group, the young people watched half of the movie: The Prince of Egypt. They ate their snacks (including popcorn) during movie time.
