Here’s a coloring page for your children to print out and color to celebrate the 1st Sunday of Lent; the Sunday of Orthodoxy.
The boys both brought their favorite icons to church this morning. Ace chose one of St. George and Lucky chose St. Panteleimon. Ace is also very excited to cut the first leg of of Kuria Saradakosti. 🙂
It’s been a quiet week in our house. We don’t have cable in our home but we usually take the little t.v. out of the closet and watch a few episodes of Little House or something in the evenings. But with Lent here, we’ve decided that we’d go back to the original plan of only watching a family movie together on Sunday evenings.
What is your child’s favorite saint and why?
Here’s a link to one of my favorite Sunday of Orthodoxy sermons.
Also, just a note to those of you who signed up your children for the Orthodox Kid’s Pen Pal Program, I sent all of the boys partners out. If you signed up a boy, you should have received their partner either yesterday or today. I’m hoping to get the girls finished up and mailed out by mid-week. We had a death in the family last week and I had to go out of town for a few days so I am a little backed up. Please pray for the soul of the departed servant of God, Elias.
I will be posting a deadline for the first letter as well as the “theme” for this month! I’m really excited, I hope you are too!
