A very busy day began today by decorating our crown of thorns with white roses and adding a white candle to the center. At the beginning of lent, we made a crown of thorns out of salt dough and placed tooth picks into it. As lent went on, when a child performed a sacrificial act, they could remove a toothpick to show that they have eased Jesus' sufferings. Our hopes were to remove all the "thorns" by Holy Saturday. We are happy to tell everyone that we did remove all the thorns, and today in there place we glued white roses, which represent the resurrected Lord.
