Our Way of the Cross Scavenger Hunt!
Go through your house and see if you can find the following things:
• Crayons or pencil crayons, to colour in the pictures
• Something with which to make a cross – popsicle sticks and glue, pipe cleaner, playdough, toothpicks, a palm branch…
• Salt water (that can just be salt disolved in water!)
• Tea lights/candles, matches/lighter
• Olive oil/scented oil
• Something to represent Jesus: a picture, icon, small figure
• White serviette
• A tomb; a place where you will put the representation of Jesus. It could be
a box, a drawer, our you might want to make your own tomb; something
simple, or something like this.

Yes you heard that right! Despite the current environment the Youth Group at St. George’s has figured out how to do a Virtual Easter Egg Hunt with your kids… and we’re bringing the fun to you!
If you, your loved ones or children have participated in the Great St. George’s Easter Egg Hunt in the past then you’ll know that it is an event not to be missed! This year we’re going to be doing things a little bit differently.
If you’ve got kids (of all ages) and would like to be involved in the egg hunt, then we’ll be dropping off or making easter eggs available for pick up, so that you can participate both online and offline in our Easter Egg Hunt Challenge. Much like Palm Cross making, we’ll be dropping eggs in mailboxes (to be hidden at your house) and doing a virtual egg hunt in the church at 12pm Easter Sunday that everyone can join by Zoom!
HOW TO JOIN THE HUNT!
It’s easy! Contact James Noronha by text or phone at 647-297-2267 or by email at email@example.com with the number of children and the address for the drop and we’ll get you sorted! Egg Drops will be happening on Friday and Saturday so please let us know if you or children you know would like to be involved and we’ll make sure to include you in the distribution!
The Easter Butterfly Project
Butterflies are a beautiful and enduring symbol of life and resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life. This is a time of endurance as we cocoon to prevent the spread of COVID19.
Easter brings us Hope. Eventually we will emerge from our cocoons and begin life once again. We invite you to make butterflies, a reminder of hope and new life. It could be painted, coloured, decorated with glitter or made out of fabric… I wonder what yours will look like. Enjoy being creative, and when we emerge from our cocoons and return to church, bring it with you.
With many thanks to Mary-Anne Rodgers there is a bulletin board (or two) waiting to be covered with your butterflies. This is a request for all ages.
