The Cross: A Symbol of Love

"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, 
and of the Holy Spirit, Amen."

We are learning about the Easter Story, and have focused on a very important symbol in our faith; the cross. Jesus suffered and died on the cross for each one of us. The cross is a powerful symbol that reminds us how much God loves us.

Brother Joe visited us this week, action bible in hand, to share the story of Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection. 

Then we tackled a special, yet challenging activity. We created beautiful burned matchstick crosses. Don't worry, the matches we worked with were already lit, cooled and very safe to touch, of course! We patiently helped one another count out matches, glue, and check and re-check the intricate pattern. This took lots of patience and collaboration!

After leaving the crosses overnight to dry, we were able to cut them out. Here are a few of the Lenten Matchstick Crosses!

Be sure to stop by our hallway bulletin board to see all of the finished crosses!

May you have a blessed Easter weekend!
