But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

Luke 18: 16

Lent I (March 9th)

Season of the Church Year: Season of Lent (Liturgical Color: Purple)
Story in Scripture: Luke 2: 1-20

Throughout the Season on Lent, these Family Pages will consist of sharing the short story lesson that your child participated in, as well as the image that was used to convey the meaning of this day of preparation. Please hold on to all of the Lent summaries so that you can reflect on them again and again as we prepare for Easter and Jesus’ resurrection. 

"This is the 1st Sunday in the Season of Lent. During Lent, we celebrate God’s story, beginning with the birth of Jesus. In the beginning, the baby was born. God chose Mary to be the mother of God. Listen carefully! Listen to the words. God chose Mary to be the Mother of God, and the Word was born a wordless child. 
When the baby looked up into the face of the Mother Mary, he already saw the cross. When he looked into the face of the Father Joseph, the cross was there, too. 
The Mother Mary and the Father Joseph held the baby close. They kept the baby warm. They gave the baby everything he needed to grow, and of course, it began to grow.”
