2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana I II Lenten journey March 24, 1989 Holy Redeemer students learn about risen Christ through baking Each week during Lent, the class held a special prayer ser- vice, which was followed by "faith sharing" and craft ac- tivities, she said. During the final session of the Lenten journey series, the students learned about the risen Jesus by making hot cross buns. They helped their teacher prepare the dough and mark each bun with a cross. While they were in church doing the stations of the cross, the dough By MARY T. ELLERT Message Staff Writer For centuries, the tradition of making hot cross buns during Lent has symbolized the hope of Easter. Last week, the first graders at Holy Redeemer School, Evansville, continued this tradition. It was part of a "Lenten journey" series of activities conducted by the first grade teacher, Marianne Webster. .raake tot first gradeclass at Holy Redeemer in a Betty Crocker HOT CROSS BUNS dry yeast cups warm water ('105 to 115 degrees) cup unseasoned lukewarm mashed potatoes S/ oons salt Washingtor Auto Trim 27 Years Service in flourto was left to rise. Webster said the children made the correlation between the rising of the dough and Jesus' rising from the dead on Easter Sunday. After the buns were baked, the children lelped outline the crosses with white frosting. The white frosting symbolizes that the cross is "no longer a suffer- ing cross, but a glorified cross," explained Webster. -Several of the students' parents visited the class to par- ticipate in the Lenten journey, said Webster. "It speaks volumes to the children that it matters to them." Parents who were present every week throughout Lent were Jeannie Utley, Martha Vivrette, Kristie Eisner and Bobbie Schutz, according to Webster. Besides the stations of the cross and hot cross buns, other topics covered during the pro- gram included "Trying to Say Yes," "Make Peace With Your Brother," "Jonah and Repen- tance," "Our Journey," and "Let Your Light Shine." Webster got the idea for the Lenten journey series from Sherry Graves, second grade teacher at St. Wendel Church, St. Wendel. Graves presented the program during a back-to- school workshop for teachers in the Diocese of Evansville last fall. = chOpped citron Marianne Webster helps her students add frosting to the hot cross buns they made during a Lenten activity. -- Message Photo by Mary T.
