Cultural Convocation


Conner Samson , Editor

The student body met for a convocation at the end of the school day on Monday to experience the culture of our mission parish in Venezuela.


A group of parishioners from Jesucristo Resucitado are visiting Minnesotan schools and parishes throughout the Archdiocese. One of the stops was to Totino-Grace high school, where after a brief introduction from Father James Peterson, the group displayed their Venezuelan culture through their music (both vocal and instrumental), as well as in performing traditional Venezuelan dances.

The parish group proudly represented their Venezuelan culture, displaying the Venezuelan flag on the clothing they wore as they performed. The group was very interactive, bringing students down from the crowd to the floor to join in the traditional dances. Father James Peterson, the associate pastor at the Mission Parish of Jesucristo Resucitado led the convocation, introducing the parish group and representing their culture.


In addition to visiting Totino-Grace, the parish group sang the 7th inning stretch at the Minnesota Twins game, and participated in a variety of school and parish masses such as: St. Odilia, Holy Family, Little Sisters of the Poor and Guardian Angels.
