Hannah and Eli made these Paschal or Easter candles today at CGS...so simple yet a great way to learn about an element of our faith and Mass. Hannah wasn't thrilled to have her picture taken...can you tell??
The A symbol is for the Alpha Greek symbol meaning the beginning, the U-like symbol on the bottom is Omega- means the end. The cross is for Jesus, the 5 marks on the cross are for the 5 wounds of Christ. The numbers are for the current year meaning that God is of all times. This was so easy, draw a flame cut it out, glue it to the rolled up cardstock stapled candle..simple and quick!
Charlie is the first 2 year old we have had that can ride a bike..with training wheels, he has to stand up to pedal sometimes, but he is so funny how coordinated he is...cracks us up, he isn't afraid of anything!
