Palm Sunday Morning
Palm Sunday Is Outside This Weekend
Starting Palm Sunday, we plan on having our 9AM child-friendly service back up and running in-person on a weekly basis through the rest of the school year (fingers crossed). Thank you for your patience! Palm Sunday will be outside (weather permitting - we have tents, but may need to move inside if it rains too heavy). If you're not comfortable returning to in-person worship just yet, that's okay! You can drive thru that morning to pick up your blessed Palm Branches, along with a craft idea. Either way, you can sign up using the green button link. There will also be a Godly Play Story Time and Parents' Exchange at 10:30AM via Zoom. The stories will be available on the website/YouTube channel, too.

Easter Egg-Stravaganza
Instead of an Easter Egg Hunt this year, we'll be doing an Easter Egg-stravaganza! Masked, socially distanced, family pod by family pod. After a short outdoor worship service, families will go through a number of stations/stops where they will receive clues. At the end of the route, there will be the famous "egg machine" and treat bags! Please reach out to Rev. Dan+ if you have any questions in the meantime.
St. Patrick's Day Recap
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the St. Patrick's Day Party! We had a lot of fun! We watched a cartoon, made crafts that taught us about the Trinity, and ate Irish Potatoes! In case you missed it, here is the link to the video we watched about St. Patrick!
Congratulations, Livi!
Livi Stites recently completed the Dismantling Racism curriculum offered by the Office of Youth Ministry from the Diocese. This was no small feat as it involved two all day sessions on February 21st and March 6th. There will be another chance to take the course later on this year. If you'd like your student to participate in this training, please reach out to Rev. Dan+
March Birthdays!

Our Diocese Made The Local News!
One of our outreach partners, St. Luke's Germantown, hosted a diocesan vaccine clinic for all clergy and essential church staff last Saturday, March 13th. Thank you to St. Luke's and DioPA for offering this opportunity. This brings us one step closer to getting back to some sense of normalcy at church!
Children Having Trouble Going To Sleep?
A meditative evening podcast for children ages 5-12 years-old and the whole family. Each week explores a spiritual theme - what does it mean to children? what does the Bible say about it? - and ends with a meditation and evening prayer that encourages children to relax into sleep surrounded by God's love. Written and produced by Joyce Chanay and Hope Newhouse, Sunday School parents and parishioners of The American Cathedral in Paris. Featuring music by the Choirs of The American Cathedral in Paris.
