Masks/Dignity of Ourselves and Others - October

Updated: Nov 6, 2019

We can only become something new when we have released the old faces we have been wearing, even if it means not knowing who we are in the space between.

Masks and Being Our Authentic Self

In Grades 6-10 Faith Formation sessions this month, the learners made masks. The lesson was to realize that we have a public life we show the world and a private life that we only know ourselves. We come to know ourselves as we develop emotionally and spiritually. Jesus was Himself authentic and helped others be authentic as well. Consider this article as a starting point to reflect on your own authenticity. The Masks We Wear
