Happy Easter everyone!!!
I received the following email from Margaret Ann, asking for some help.
I started putting together my next Family Program for the Home Schooler Rel. Ed. folks at my parish. I’m thinking along the lines of the Easter Season Readings/Feast Days – Ascension, Pentecost.
I am leaning on the theme of New Growth, Gardening, Spring, Rogation Days (the ritual of blessing the fields – this year they are May 10, 11, 12, the three days prior to Ascension Thursday), care of the Earth, etc.
As possible activities I thought we’d do some sort of planting. I’d like to do a modified blessing of the “urban fields” as part of the session, possibly make and bless stick crosses for their “garden”, “useful” objects out of recycled junk, etc. Do you have anything like this in your “bag of tricks” or other helpful resources? I don’t mind if you put these questions out to your blog readers.
Thanks. Have a Blessed Easter.
What’s in your own bag ‘o tricks that might help her?
