Dear Pilgrims and Friends,
Lent is a time in which we embark on a journey of reflection, meditation, worship, and service over the course of the next several weeks. This year, the Lenten focus for Children's Church will be on the Saints. Each week, we will learn about a different, new, and popular Saint. Our proposed schedule will include a variety of Saints, here is our schedule:
March 10th: St. Ignatius of Loyola (Patron Saint of Retreats)
March 17th: St. Catherine of Bologna (Patron Saint of the Arts)
March 24th: St. Benedict Joseph Labre (Patron Saint of the Homeless)
March 31st: St. Francis of Assisi (Patron Saint of the Environment and Animals)
April 7th: St. Martha (Patron Saint of Cooks)
This schedule is flexible but these saints are not. If you are interested in being a part of the lesson for any of these saints but cannot do the proposed date, please let me know! I am looking for people who have a deep connection (knowingly or unknowingly) to these Saints. Do you cook? Do you enjoy retreats? Do you enjoy meditation? We've already got someone on board for St. Francis of Asisi. This will be quite fun!
On April 14th, we will have an Intergenerational Service for Palm Sunday. On Easter Sunday, both Children's Church and the Junior Youth will join together to make our semi-traditional Resurrection Rolls for coffee hour.
