Lent resources


There are some good resources for Lent out there. With Ash Wednesday coming soon, here are some helpful places on the web to think about preparing for Lent.

Creighton Ministries has a set of concrete practices that we can undertake to consider where we might each be called to prepare for Lent:

If you would like a daily email sent to  your inbox, Loyola Press has one that you can sign up for here:

The United States conference of bishops has a daily calendar with suggested ways to practice Lent each day:

If you use the church Rice Bowl boxes from Catholic Relief Services but prefer the ease of electronic donations, you can find the app here:

Of course, the best resource is to pray about what we might be called to do this Lent, and to pay attention to what possibilities that God might offer!
