Joe Paprocki couldn’t resist offering one more Lenten calendar for you! This one comes to you courtesy of his Loyola Press colleague Linnette Mathys who thought it would be a good idea to arrange my 40 Ideas for 40 Days into a calendar!
From Joe Paprocki: When it comes to practicing our faith, Lent is a time of heightened intensity. Catechists of all age groups are always looking for creative Lenten activities so as to heighten that intensity. With Lent upon us, I’m pleased to offer these FORTY lenten activities arranged in a convenient interactive calendar (pdf) that I hope will be of use to you.
(Note: Simply click on the activity title on each day to visit the activity detail.)
These activities come from a variety of sources: from my own experience as a catechist, from various Web sites that I credit accordingly, and from catechists like you who shared their creative ideas with me. The activities are grounded in the symbols, Scripture readings, devotions, and traditions of the Lenten season. Be sure to check this calendar each day to find another Lenten activity that you can adapt for your own setting.
May this Lent be a time of heightened focus on faith formation for you and for those you teach!
