Mass and the environment engage students at St. Hugh

COCONUT GROVE | Students at St. Hugh School have been busy the past few weeks, learning about the Mass and solving an environmental problem.

To prepare themselves for Lent, third graders in Julie Daligney’s religion class created their own “Mass kit” to take home and practice with their family.

“This was an opportunity for third grade families to go over the items of the Mass and bond together as a family by communicating together about their Catholic faith and the miracle of the Eucharist,” explained Daligney, who teaches religion to kindergarten through fourth graders.

“The students learned about the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in a fun and tactile way, they gained familiarity with the names and uses of the objects in Church and learned about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist,” added Mary E. Fernandez, St. Hugh’s principal.

On Feb. 15 and 16, 2024, the fifth-grade students and teachers attend the Miami Children's Environmental Congress at AUA Schools in Miami. 122 students from various schools came together to learn, collaborate, and present an actionable solution to the problem of plastics harming the environment. St. Hugh’s students were part of the team whose solution was voted in first place by the students in attendance.
