lent 2017






There are various printed resources for children and adults available to buy in the Repository including "Walk with Me” and “My Day by Day" booklets.


The 40 days of Lent reflect the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness; Jesus fasted during this time and so Catholics identify with his suffering by abstaining from particular foods during Lent and by extra prayer and charitable works.

These 40 days are an opportunity to remember Jesus’ death; a time to reflect on what we have received through Jesus’ death for us: healing, freedom, salvation, forgiveness, life... 40acts is a generosity challenge inviting us all to approach Lent a little differently. During the 40 days of Lent (Sundays aren’t counted), you are invited to take part in 40 simple acts of generosity, and to be more generous in our words, our actions, our whole lives!
