Jesus, hippos, dogs and Batman!
Diocese of Evansville Deacon Tom Cervone sent us this photo of his grandson, Henry Gish, 4, with the poster he created for his bedroom during the COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions. He shares the bedroom with his sister, Amerlia, 2. Deacon Tom told us, “Henry told his mom and dad that the poster had to have Jesus, hippos, dogs and Batman. I love his mindset.” Henry is a Pre-K student at Sts. Peter and St. Paul School in Haubstadt. He is the son of John and Nicole Gish; John teaches at Sts. Peter and St. Paul. Grandparents are Deacon Tom and Marie Cervone, and Mark and Jenny Gish. Well-done Henry!
