Lent is a time to prepare for Easter through prayer, fasting and almsgiving (or giving to charity).
Giving to the Together We Serve appeal is one way to live the Word of God, as we are invited to do by Archbishop Smith. We invite your family to journey through Lent 2017 using the Family Lenten Calendar to learn more about this special season and about the people we help through Together We Serve.
Pick up a copy of the calendar at your parish,
or download it here to print at home
(PDF, two pages, on legal-size paper 8½ x 14").
The calendar includes some directions for more information on activities you and your family can do on certain days in Lent.
