Visual Arts & Drama - Thursday, 18 May 2023 – The Ascension of our Lord, Year A.
ASCENSION BANNER – SYMBOLS
Make a poster or banner of the Ascension using images of Christ’s kingship, such as a crown, sceptre, or even palm branches (the theme of Palm Sunday is very similar to the theme of the Ascension). Other symbols sometimes used for the Ascension are an eagle, Elijah’s fiery chariot, and a raised hand of blessing. The Ascension banner could be displayed until Pentecost. It may replace an Easter banner in order to show that a new phase of the Easter celebrations has arrived.
Altar Colour: White

Dramatising the Readings
The readings can be read by more than one person to make the dramatic meaning of the text clearer.
For instance, the first reading from Acts could be read by four readers: narrator, Jesus, disciple, angel.
