- Ask your Ministers of Care to take them to homebound parishioners and nursing home residents.
Art/Space Smart, Word Smart
Write a few sample Easter greetings on the board. This will help ensure appropriateness and spelling.
Talk to the children about people who are homebound or who live alone in a nursing home. Explain how important it is to keep in contact with these people and that the children are acting in the name of all parishioners.
