Holy Mass begins at 12:10pm. Please bring a packed lunch for the picnic (outdoor or indoor) which follows at about 1pm. Catechism classes for children begin at 2pm, with a 'craft-catechism' for the little ones. There is a class for adults at 2:30pm. The classes are followed by games--with no hurry to finish.
About the jelly beans... well this month the little ones made labels for jams jars with a colour-coded list such that particular actions are rewarded (or given a black mark) by dropping the appropriately coloured jelly bean in their personal jar. By the end of Lent the assortment of colours will tell its own story. With Lent over, the collection is doubtless ready to be devoured. Not only does all this increase the children's awareness of the merit (or trouble) of certain actions, but surely develops heroic temperance and even fortitude to resist scoffing a growing pile of jelly beans for weeks on end! Whichever child can master that is surely on the path to sainthood.
