Dear St. Michael Preschool Families,
We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, and is the season in which we prepare our hearts for the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. The forty days of Lent are an opportunity to enrich our daily lives and become closer to God through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
Explaining Lent to children can be a challenge, but as preschool educators, we find kid-friendly ways to make the concepts and traditions of Lent meaningful to them. Prayers from the heart, acts of kindness, a Lenten Prayer Pot, Bible stories, and our Ash Wednesday Prayer Service are just a few examples I’m sure you will enjoy hearing about from your children.
During Lent, let us inspire each other to create special moments that allow our preschool community to be more like Jesus and grow closer to God.
