In the Gospel for October 13, the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Luke 17:11–19), Jesus heals ten lepers, but only one returns to thank him. This is a lesson in faith and gratitude. Children are taught to express thanks for big blessings in their lives. Thank You, God, for Water is an activity to help Promise children (kindergarten–first grade) understand the importance of being thankful for things that otherwise may seem small or simple, like water. This activity is available to download and print in Spanish and English.
