Easter: Raising the Alleluias
During Lent, the “Alleluias” are not said in the services. So at the Jazz Service celebrating Mardi Gras, the children buried the Alleluia banner in the columbarium, putting away the symbol of that discipline. When the joyful day of Easter arrives, we raise the Alleluia once again. All the children are invited to gather in the columbarium at 10:00 a.m. on Easter Sunday and help to resurrect the banner. Then the children are invited to carry the Alleluia in the Easter procession, returning this symbol to life in the liturgy.
And the Easter Egg Hunt
Join us in Monroe Park after church on Easter Sunday for the Easter Egg Hunt. All children are invited to attend. Bring your own Easter basket, and have at it!
