Thanks you Ryan-Zane for organizing the kids' time for this year's Lazarus Saturday!
Looks like they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, while learning about a very special celebration.
Monday, April 22, 2013
This coming Saturday is our Annual cleaning Bee to get the church in top shape for Holy Week and Pascha. This year there will also be a special time for children. Hopefully this will allow some parents to participate in the cleaning while their children are looked after.
The day starts sharply at 10AM.
If your interested in helping with the children's side of the day, please contact Zane. If your interested in the cleaning side of the day, just show up with work clothes, rain coats, and any tools you may want to bring. If you are planning on staying the day,
PLEASE BRING FOOD to share for lunch time.
The day's schedule will look something like: Matins will be about 15-20 mintues, if even that. Then general duties will be assigned for the clean up. Clean up will go for about 2-3 hours until lunch time. Then continue through the afternoon until projects are completed. Please bring rain coats and work clothes. The more help the better!!!
The kids time will last from 10AM to around 2:30PM with a break for lunch.
For this kids portion: We have a very special time planned.
***The children will get a chance to see some of the liturgical items that are kept behind the alter.***
This is a once a YEAR chance to see these things. Fr. Lawrence will be explaining to the children what the items are. There will also be a prosphora explanation. We will have story time, colouring, some crafts, and weather depending some outside time...
