Come, Receive the Light

Come, Receive the Light


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

This week, we celebrate Pascha, the feast of feasts! Do you remember the special song we sing for Pascha? Pres. Alexandra asks you to think about what it’s like to be in the dark. Is it hard to walk around? How do you feel when you can’t see anything? At Pascha, we celebrate the beautiful light of Christ in our lives. You can read about Pascha in this newsletter, and you can do a coloring page, get through a maze, and learn how to say “Christ is Risen!” in other languages!
