LEGOs at Mass

Yesterday I gave an assignment. "Let's recreate ICC!"  What a fun project to put together! I don't know why we didn't think of it sooner. I was amazed at how creative the boys got with their details. There's even the sign language interpreter for the sermon.

 The altar --notice the altar lamp on the left. The tabernacle can even open. The altar was really Dominic's creation. I spent my time trying to find something that resembled a cross. That was really tough. Of course, I don't have the LEGO experience that the boys have. Though it really sucks you in once you get started.

 The thurifer with the incense. I love it!

 The line for the confessional

And of course, the view from the sacristy
I really am amazed at how this came together. It was so exciting when each little detail was thought of and then found. I love how everybody worked together. Even Zachary was putting the people together. Xavier made the confessional. Dominic and I did the altar. He knew the details of everything that is up there and Blaise did the pews and the server seats. I don't know about the boys, but today when we went to Mass, I saw everything in LEGOS. Just a side effect. It will wear off. The excitement of the building of ICC, I hope, has just begun. A great teaching tool!
