The Children’s Word: Who is Jesus’ Family?

The Children’s Word: Who is Jesus’ Family?


Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!

This week, Pres. Alexandra tells about the people who were part of Jesus’ family when He was born here on earth. You can also learn something special about the people who are STILL part of His family!  You have probably been hearing a lot about Saint Nicholas, but did you know there is another Saint who brings special gifts at this time of year? Read about Saint Basil to find out about that. You can also do a coloring page, find your way through a maze, and do an icon activity.
