My Mom used to always say, "There is never an ill wind that doesn't blow somebody some good." Here at All Saints we like to turn challenges into opportunities, which is why we have decided to create this new KIDS CORNER page, not just for our own children, but for children everywhere.
While it may take us a few weeks to get our feet wet, and to get up and running, we've decided that our starting point will be to archive our Holy Week children's activities. We invite all Parishioners to feel free to offer their ideas and input going to our comment form here.
Please check back here often...
Today is Mother's Day. Mother's Day is a day for us to honour our Mothers. Our parents are a gift from God to help us and we should always be thankful for our parents.
The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:1-3: Children, if you want to be wise, listen to your parents and do what they tell you, and the Lord will help you. For the commandment, “Honor your father and your mother,” was the first of the Ten Commandments with a promise attached: “You will prosper and live a long, full life if you honor your parents.”
On this special day, one way we can honour our Mothers is to give them an extra special hug and to help them. Below you will find some links to some special colouring sheets you can colour as a special "thank you" for your Moms.
The Road to Emmaus
Today’s Gospel tells us the story of Jesus appearing to two of his followers on the Road to Emmaus. When Jesus first appeared to them, they did not know who he was. They were very sad about Jesus having been crucified and they didn’t know that he had risen from the dead. As they walked along, Jesus talked to them about God’s promises and how even though Jesus had died, He rose from the dead so that we could have eternal life. When the two followers realized that they had been talking to Jesus they were very happy and ran back to Jerusalem to tell the other disciples that they had seen Jesus.

Have you ever heard someone say “Don’t be a doubting Thomas”? A “doubting Thomas” is a name used to describe someone who refuses to believe something without direct personal experience. People started using “doubting Thomas” after the very first Easter.

Easter Egg Colouring
Sunday, April 12, 2020
There are a lot of different symbols used to remind us of Easter - flowers, bunnies and chicks. Most people associate Easter with Easter Eggs.
You may have wondered why an egg is a symbol of Easter. The reason we use an egg to represent Easter is because eggs represent new life. Have you ever seen a baby chick hatch? When the chick hatches, the egg cracks and a new little chick comes out. The empty egg shell is like the tomb where they put Jesus on Good Friday after he died. On Easter Sunday the tomb was empty and Jesus was alive.
