If you heard singing and a prayerful jam session coming from the Community of the Good Shepherd Parish in Cincinnati last month, it might have been the parish's seventh graders and Sr. Maria Therese Schappert.

Sr. Maria Therese was recruited by Sr. Elaine Marie Winter, Director of Faith Formation at Good Shepherd, to join the summer faculty. For two weeks in July, Sr. Maria Therese had the pleasure of teaching the seventh graders.

Their days together began with Mass and included by music, two religion classes, lunch and recess. At the end of each day, one class would lead all of the students and teachers in a prayer service. The seventh graders' prayer service focused on Jesus: Who Do You Say I Am. During the service, students who play musical instruments played alongside Sr. Maria Therese, sharing their lesson and prayer through song.
