Divine Mercy Sunday

For Divine Mercy Sunday, we started the class off with having the kids color St. Faustina while all of the kids arrived.  Click here to go to a free coloring page sheet on Saint

We then moved to circle time, and passed out a rosary to each child.  In the center of our circle we had a small white cloth and an easter candle to celebrate the season.

We told the kids about the ABC's of the Divine Mercy...

A:  Ask for His Mercy; B:  Be Merciful; C:  Completely Trust in Jesus.

We prayed the beginning and one decade of the Divine Mercy Chaplet.  I put together some info I found on the internet here as a Divine Mercy Chaplet take-home sheet. 

Finally, we created the craft pictured above, with toilet paper rolls and the cute print out design from Catholic Icing.  Instead of fan folding the blue and red light streams, we used my Fiskars paper crimper, which the kids loved using.
