Fun, noise and preparation

Finding out about the Last Supper

Little feet from St Chrysostom’s Church and School walked the road to Easter on Monday and Tuesday this week at the Church Holiday Children’s days.

Over two days the children journeyed from the fun, noise and celebration of Palm Sunday through the Last Supper, sadness of Good Friday, preparations of Holy Saturday and joys of Easter Sunday.
A wheelbarrow sufficed as the donkey that carried Bronwyn, who played Jesus, up the Nave of the Church under arches of palm and the children shouting ‘Hosanna in the highest’ and waving palms. Within just a few hours our imaginary journey took us to ‘Good Friday’ and the park to make our Easter garden and crowns of thorns for Jesus.
Anyone coming to the actual Easter Vigil on Saturday night will see evidence of the childrens hard work: between playing games and baking Easter biscuits, they made beautiful paper blossom decorated with the Easter story that we shall hang on our inside Prayer tree at the Vigil ready for the new life of Easter day!
Reynhard, one of the many adults from St Chrysostom’s who helped run the days said, ‘The theatricality of the story and activities was fabulous. It was lovely to see the children get so involved in the Easter story.’
