Ash Wednesday Religious Release Day Program for Elementary School Students

With 0 Comments, Category: Announcements,

Has Lent been a challenge for your family to put into practice at home? Get a great start to the Lenten season by registering your son and/or daughter for our Ash Wednesday program.

Drop of your child at St. John’s on March 1st from 8:45am-3:15pm for a child-friendly introduction to the Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

Children will have the chance to attend our morning chapel service, bake, walk a Labyrinth and so much more!

Once you’re registered, we provide an official letter for your child’s school so your son or daughter can be marked down as attending a “Religious Observance” (these are not noted as an absence but rather as “G” for “granted”).  See this link on the Thames Valley District School Board for more information. Be rest assured, your child will not be penalized academically for participating in our program.

Ready to sign up? Simply send your contact information before February 27th to  or call Ilona at 289.230.9524 to learn more.

What to bring: peanut-free lunch and a labelled water bottle

Cost: Pay what you can. All free-will donations received go towards future programs for children and youth.

We look forward to sharing this Holy day with you.
