The Cross is 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.

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

Using pastels, we created beautiful crosses, reminding us of our risen Lord. 

We loved getting our fingers dirty as we smudged the pastels!

Then we tackled a special, yet challenging activity with some very helpful junior high students. 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 counted out matches, glued, and checked and re-checked the intricate pattern. This took lots of patience and collaboration!

The symbol of the cross reminds us of Jesus' everlasting, infinite love for us!
