What’s happening with Christian Formation?

Welcome to Lent!! We kicked off Lent with our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper and how delicious it was!!

The Ash Wednesday Children’s Service will be at 6pm. It is short service that is geared towards the children and they will receive ashes.

During Lent, we will hear the stories about what god created and talk about focusing on what we can do better, rather than scarifying or giving something up. The kids have been asked to set a goal for themselves for the next 40 days. We are also continuing our road map to Easter. The kids were asked how they can be more like Jesus. They came home with the map and each day they do their act they should color in the stone and bring it back on Easter.

In March the Youth Group will be going on a small trip to escape the room and will be looking forward for the annual night watch during Holy Week.

During Lent the parish has a soup and scripture session, where Father Kevin leads a discussion about the bible, that is on Wednesdays in March, starting March 8th at 6:30pm. The parish will have lots of activities for holy week so stay tuned.

 

Sincerely,

Lisa Chiara
