Happy month of September! After a refreshing summer break, we are back with many plans for creating exciting new content here at Orthodox Pebbles. Meanwhile, at our parish, as in most parishes, preparations are well underway for the start of the new Sunday School season.
One of our first lessons of the year usually deals with the Holy Cross of our Lord, as we celebrate the Great Feast of the Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross on September 14.
We have created a number of printable activity packets with interactive ideas for teaching about the Holy Cross – some inspired by the Exaltation, and some by the Veneration of the Cross (commemorated on the third Sunday of Great Lent). Activities from these packets can be used to teach any lesson focusing on the Holy Cross. Even if you are now planning a lesson on the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, we recommend exploring all our Holy Cross content, as some material from one Feast can also be used for teaching the other.

With warmest wishes for a blessed, peaceful and spiritually fruitful ecclesiastical year,
Natalie and Despina
