We won't be back together for a little longer as we await things to open up a little more. Our new goal (and hopefully the last) is Lent 1, which is March 6th. Here is our next online session for families to do together at home. This one is themed on Candlemas as we learn what Candlemas is and hear the story of Simeon and Anna. You will find everything you need including coloring sheets and the story in the attached PDF for you to print at home and below is your list of things you need:

Please note this activity includes hot wax, and children should be supervised at all times, parents should handle the wax and should wear protective gloves when handling it. Not suitable for children under the age of 5.

  • Kebab stick, popsicle stick, or some other stirrer for the wax
