Just in case you were curious, Saint Benjamin was a martyr who preached of Jesus in Persia during a time when it was not allowed. His feast day is March 31. Unfortunately for my children, I do not sew, so I actually found a place online where you could order a saint costume - ha! I got a pretty plain one so all 3 kids could wear it for their saints and then we made the embelishments to go with it. Every picture we found of Saint Benjamin showed him wearing this big hat, so here is what Paul and Ben came up with - pretty good if you ask me!
It was a very nice mass. We all went and enjoyed watching Ben do his part. He also got to bring up the gifts, which was unexpected but one of the kids who was supposed to do it wasn't there so he filled in. He wasn't supposed to have a part because he had a part in the year end mass last year. They try to make sure everyone gets to participate, which is good.
