Presvytera Alexandra Houck created The Children's Word bulletin so children will know they are not only welcome in church, but even more, an essential part of the Church family. She hopes the weekly bulletin will be just one more way we can make kids feel at home in church. Presvytera Alexandra is a graduate of Duke University and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. Her husband, Fr. Jason Houck, is a priest at St. Mary's Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis, MN. Presvytera Alexandra and Fr. Jason have five small children: Lydia, Paul, Silas, Philip, and Sarah. Presvytera Alexandra grew up attending Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Asheville, North Carolina with her nine siblings.
This week, Presvytera Alexandra is thinking about the words we hear over and over again in life. What do you hear most often – “Be careful! Say please!”? Sometimes when we hear something often, we stop listening. But should we? Read to find out. You can also learn about the feast of Transfiguration! And there is a hymn puzzle to figure out, a coloring page, and an icon activity.
