Instead of doing 1 large Escape Room, this month we are doing 2 small Escape Rooms that you can try to Escape from!
The first one (the red sheets) is all about the Stations of the Cross, name the Stations and put them in order. If you’ve never prayed the Stations of the Cross before, watch the Stations Video on this page and learn all about them as you pray!
The second one (the purple pages) is a little more challenging and is all about the different People, Places and Things we encounter during Holy Week. If you need help with this one, check out the Holy Week stories in the 4 Gospels in the Bible! A Bible was included in your Bridge bag or an online Bible can be found here - https://bible.usccb.org/bible
Email Matt at email@example.com if you are stuck and need help!
