In Greece, the first day of the Great Fast, Clean Monday, is marked with kite flying. The kite flying is ripe with symbolism for our Lenten journey: just as the kite soars high above the ground breaking free from being held down, so the Christian can use the period of Lent to break free from the passions.

Bring a picnic lunch and join us in the large open space for kite flying and crafting fun! Please RSVP to Lisa Wuertz (snlwuertz at gmail dot com) so we can be sure to have enough craft supplies for everyone.
