Preparing for a Holy Lent for all Ages
March 3 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
SUNDAY MARCH 3 DURING COFFEE HOUR, “PREPARING FOR LENT: CRAFTING CROSSES, ANGLICAN ROSARY BEADS, PRAYER BAGS” — With a desire to prepare our hearts and homes for the mystery of Easter, the Ministry of Discipleship and Discernment will be offering Lenten activities during coffee hour on Sunday, March 3. All ages are invited to assemble and finish a beautiful wooden cross crafted by our parishioner Bruce Lawrence. These can be brought home to use as a focal point for prayer during Lent. Darcey Mercier will also be offering a lesson on how to use the Anglican rosary beads. She will have plenty to give away for those interested in incorporating this practice in their prayer life.
All may gather additional take-home Lenten crafts and prayers to use for each Sunday of Lent. Rosie Wojcik, Megan Buchanan, and Jeff Hiam have sewn cotton tote bags for transporting these materials home. The bags can be decorated at the event and our hope is to use them again for other liturgical seasons. We invite you to join us as we anticipate the coming of Lent!
