The altar and Julia
Julia, age 6, set the altar. She then went into their classroom and returned with four children. She asked them to sit in front of the model of the altar. She then sat in front of them on the edge of the altar. She picked up each article, said its name, asked them to repeat it, and passed that article around. She led them in 2-3 songs, including Thank you God, and then had each practice snuffing the unlit candle. She then directed each child to put away an item from the altar.
