It’s that time of year once again! Each of the children (ages 3 to 12) spent time writing and decorating an Alleluia card this past week in the Atrium. It brought a smile to my face to see the older children enter and exclaim with joy over this yearly activity that they have fond memories of! The elementary children who have experienced this before went right to work without an introduction, designing some beautiful Alleluias that I look forward to sharing with you once they are “unburied” at Easter!
Some of the younger children remembered this event from last year, but for many this was a new experience. We spoke about what “Alleluia” means (“Praise the Lord!) and talked about Lent as a time of quiet and listening as we prepare for Easter and “save up” our Alleluias for that greatest of all feasts!
