"Our Path to Pascha includes 50 days, each represented by a felt pebble, 42 days for six weeks of Lent, plus 7 days of Holy Week, plus one for Annunciation. The Path to Pascha presents a tangible timeline to the length of Lent and the approach of Pascha. Festal Celebrations began this project because nothing like it could be found elsewhere for use in our Orthodox homes. Children enjoy visual calendars while waiting for events, such as Pascha. Fifty days is a long time, and the calendar keeps mom on track too...

"Each day in this Path to Pascha relates to a Gospel reading and a corresponding symbol on the pebble. For the littlest ones, a daily reading from a children’s Bible will be enough. You can expand the Path to Pascha by reading from the Orthodox Study Bible and learning from all the wonderful footnotes..."
