Sunday of Orthodoxy Coloring Page

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.

Tonight we’ll be watching Saving Sarah Cain, which is one of my favorite movies. It’s based on the book The Redemption of Sarah Cain by Beverly Lewis.

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!

  1. Hi, i am a mom of five and i have a girl who will be 8 in april Maria, a boy who is going to be 6 in april Peter and thomas will be 5 in may. I realize i am late but is it past all hope haha, and also is it ok if we are catholics. I was Eastern Orthodox by baptism but i think our faith is coming from the same stream that is Jesus and his Apostles. If it is too late and we can not do it that will be sad but we can try next time!!! Thank you i enjoy your blog!!

  2. Thanks for the coloring page – we worked on it tonight! Nikeo took an icon of St. Nicholas in a boat to church with him today. I was proud of him because he actually held it up high!

  3. Lord have mercy. Memory Eternal.

  4. Pavlos also chose St. George- something about boys and soldiers and dragons and swords:) Petros chose an icon of the Theotokos. It was raining, snowing, and then hailing during our procession!May his memory be eternal!

  5. May his memory be eternal!(Was it the same Elias I know of, who was struck by a car while visiting Florida?)

  6. May Elias’ Memory be Eternal.
