In Lent 2019 we gathered to discuss and discern the mission and vision of the parish. We had good fellowship and lots of laughter, but the essential goal was quite serious.
This year our goal is also serious – to create a set of Stations of the Cross for the parish – but it will be a much more creative and artistic experience!
Our Stations will be terrific, but they will not look like this.
On Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 PM, beginning March 4 and going through April 1, all ages are invited to come together for an extended group art project. We’ll begin by learning about what the Stations of the Cross are, and doing some “warm-up” activities to get our creative juices flowing. The actual creation of the set of Stations will take place during the last three sessions. Please come!
Some other Lenten things to take note of:
SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE DINNER on February 25! Come EARLY (5:45) to see and hear the Messy Church felt board story from the session that was snowed out on February 7. All, and kids especially, are encouraged to come in costume!
ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICES 10:00 and 7:30 on February 26.
LENT IN A BAG kits will be available at both the above events – a simple collection of objects to bring home, to help you pray and reflect during the 6 weeks of the Lenten season.
GOOD FRIDAY DAY CAMP – 10-4 on April 10. Children aged 3-12 are welcome to come and participate in a day of activities, crafts, and play centered around the Easter story. $10 for the day, snacks provided, bring your lunch. Volunteers needed as well!
This post wouldn’t be complete without a particular shout-out to Janet Callary, our craft wizard, who’s helping with pretty much everything on this list, and Marie-Claude Martz, co-conspirator on the Good Friday Day Camp.
I look forward to seeing everyone at church in Lent, and also at one or more of these events!
