Lent is our time of preparation.
During these 40 days, we ponder what it means to “give up, take up and lift up.” Using the spiritual practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, we deepen our relationship with Christ and discern where God is working in our lives.
Resources for 2019
Stations of the Cross - We have audio recordings of the Stations of the Cross and a prayer guide that you can download to follow along.
How to Make a Good Confession Infographic - Includes illustrated steps on how to make a good confession and simple explanations of the Examination of Conscience and Act of Contrition. It's a great resource for parents to use with their children.
Take a Lenten Journey with us. The Sunday Readings and Bishop Libasci’s Pastoral Letter, “A Call to Hope, A Call to Act” (January 16, 2019) will frame our Lenten Reflections this year. Each week a portion of the pastoral letter, coupled with one of the Sunday Readings, will serve as the basis for further reflection, daily prayer and acts of charity. Opening ourselves to the merciful love of God the Father, to the hope that is Christ and to the presence of the Holy Spirit will empower us to witness more clearly and consistently to our Catholic faith and to be a sure sign of hope to our world.
Lenten Litany on Fasting and Feasting - Read this litany for an interesting perspective on fasting and feasting. It may give you some ideas as you consider your Lenten choices.
