**Religion** **Lenten** **Project (assigned last Monday – 3/16/20)**

Lent is a good time to refelect on the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.

These mysteries help us understand that Jesus suffered & died a cruel Death out of love for us & to save us.

His suffering is known as His Passion.

The project will take several days to complete. Don’t expect to do it all in one day.

It requires you to stop & think about each mystery & spend some time in prayer.

Thank Jesus for all He has done for you & all the blessings in your life!

**Directions to assemble the booklet:**

*Tear out the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary booklet which can be found in the back of your Religion book.

*Cut the page in half along the dotted line.

*Place the upper half of the page (pages 4 & 5) on top of the lower half (pages 2 & 3)

*Fold the page on the solid line

**Prayerfully read** through each Sorrowful Mystery & if you have a Bible also read the Scripture passage indicated.

#1: The Agony in the Garden (Matthew 26:36-46)

#2: The Scourging (Matthew 27:15-26)

#3: The Crowning with Thorns (Mark 15:21-25)

#4: The Carrying of the Cross (Mark 15:21-25)

#5: The Death of Our Lord – the Crucifixion (Mark 15:33-39)

Also reread Chapter 15 in our Religion books.

**Choose a scene** from one of the Sorrowful Mysteries.

**Create** a poster, drawing, painting or even a diorama of the Passion(Suffering) of Jesus based on the mystery.

A diorama is scene created in a shoebox. You can use all kinds of materials – clay, play doh, legos …be creative!

You can paint the scene or use construction paper to line the box.

You choose which type of project you would like to do – a poster, drawing, painting, or diaroma.

Please bring these project into school when we retun & we can share our works of art with our classmates!!

Feel free to email me at class3a@stjaneschool.com to let me know how your project is going.
