A few Ideas for the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Icon from Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Raleigh, NC

This Sunday is, of course, the first Sunday of Great Lent and the Sunday of Orthodoxy.  On Orthodox blogs and websites, there are so many wonderful icon activities.  I especially like this idea for an Icon family tree on Orthodox Education Blogspot:

Isn’t that beautiful? I will have to try it soon!  Another idea for your parish or Sunday school setting could be modeled after the following:

“At St. Andrew’s, in Boston, the children make and decorate icons.  They will procession (sic) around the church after Liturgy and Father will bless the icons.  These are saved, by the priest, who will give them to sick or shut-in parishioners during the coming year. – “monkvasy”,  posted on orthodoxchristianity.net.
What a neat idea! Another wonderful way for children to give alms during the first week of lent.
