What’s happening with Christian Formation?

Lent is half way over…..and Holy week will be fast approaching.  March came in like a lion and is going out like a lamb.

Lent has been full of learning in Sunday School. The kids have been asked to set a goal for themselves for lent.  They were given a stone walkway to color in each day and to return on Easter Sunday before the Easter egg hunt.   During our chapel time downstairs we have learned the prayer of confession.  And now say it every Sunday during our chapel.

The parish has lots of activities for Holy Week: we will kick off Holy Week on Sunday, April 14th with Palm Sunday, with our own blessing of the Palms and a visit from Father Kevin!  On Maundy Thursday, April 16th we will have our annual Maundy Thursday dinner starting at 6pm.  On Good Friday, there will be a Children’s Stations of the Cross at 10:00am (please bring back your coin boxes to this service).  And Easter, well, Easter will be just beautiful and fun with our visit from the Easter Bunny. (Be sure to bring your own basket).  There will be no regular Sunday School classes.  There also will be no Sunday School on Sunday, April 28th.

Don’t forget dinner and movie night on Saturday, April 6th at 6pm.  This is a family event and the movie will be “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”.

Blueberry will continue on his adventures, please be sure to email pictures of your kids with him so we can add them to our Instagram wall.

Please be sure to follow the church on Facebook (Church of the Ascension-Rockville Centre), on Instagram (ascensionrvc)  and check out the new website http://www.ascensionrvc.org/ for updates and pictures.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.  If you have any suggestions for fun or would like to volunteer please feel free to contact myself or Father Kevin.
