In these times children rarely have an opportunity to attend Holy Week services and experience the drama of the journey of Christ to the cross. We only let them see the joy of Easter. With that in mind we have created a special day at St. Peter’s on Good Friday that includes a family-oriented service, lunch, a movie and a craft/outreach activity that runs nearly the same time as the school day. We do so to expose children to the drama of Holy Week leading up to Easter. We also shape it as a day-long activity because Good Friday is one of the days children have off from school and parents/guardians have to work.
If you have children yourself and/or you have grandchildren or other children who have the day out of school and would enjoy this kind of day, I urge you to consider sending them to St. Peter’s in Hebron for Good Friday from 10 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
The only thing we ask is that we have an idea if your kids are coming so we have enough food, etc. We did this service/event last year and it was well received by the kids and families. Adults who want to attend are also welcome. This is a powerful way for all to enter into Holy Week and lead up to Easter Sunday. I hope you will join us.
