Easter Garden

In the notices, we will realize that on the 24th of March (Palm Sunday), all the young people in St. Anselm and Sunday School teachers will work together to build the Easter Garden for us immediately after mass. It is important to note that last year, it was so exciting to see them share ideas to make the Garden beautiful, with interesting creative ideas coming from everyone. When we try to present the resurrection scene with kids, it becomes a privilege and an opportunity for them to be innovative and to picture the resurrection scene, which will linger in their minds for a long time.

If you do not know what the Easter Garden is about, I will encourage you to join them after mass on Palm Sunday. I bet there will be a lot to learn from them. Making the Easter Garden, apart from being exciting, is a Christian tradition that allows us to depict and retell the Easter story creatively. You may wonder what you will see at the Easter Garden. The Easter Garden always have the tomb, hill, cross, rock and all the wonderful flowers and grass that make it so beautiful and full of life. 

A reflection on the Easter Garden brings a lot of scenes together and moves us to meditate on the start of the passion through Holy Week and, ultimately, the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Easter Garden is about hope and encouragement that even if things become complex or challenging, Jesus Christ will come to rescue us. It is a call to all of us to encourage all the kids to see this as an avenue to do the little they can for the church of God.
