Catechesis - Our Lady of the Cedars Boston
On Sunday, February 23, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light catechized the chlldren on the approaching season of Great Lent at Our Lady of the Cedars parish in Boston. Mother Marla Marie explained to the children and youth that Great Lent is a forty-day journey in which we seek to deepen our relationship with Christ through prayer, sacrifice and fasting.
The children were encouraged by the Sisters to prepare for their forty-day journey by giving examples of some of the sacrifices they may consider. One little girl said that instead of watching her usual hour of television every night, she would be helping her mommy in the kitchen.
Fr. Georges El-Khalli, Pastor, visited the class and reminded the children to persevere in their sacrifices for love of Jesus. The class concluded with a Lenten craft project.
