Are you looking to do more this Lent beyond giving something up? If whatever you give up makes more room in your life for God, then let’s be intentional about dedicating that space for God.
Sacred Heart has several ways you can get involved during this Lenten season, and we encourage you to join us in one or more of the suggestions below. Happy Lenten journey!
Dynamic Catholic: Best Lent Ever
What is Best Lent Ever? Its a free email program that will guide you on an incredible 40-day journey to become the-best-version-of-yourself, making this a truly life-changing Lent.
Formed: Watch, Read, and Reflect for 10 Minutes a Day
Watch a beautiful video reflection from Ahava Productions’ ECHO series, featuring Bishop Hying, read an inspiring passage from the Catechism, and reflect on how God’s truth applies to your daily life.
Diocesan: Reflections and Challenges Delivered Daily to your Inbox
As we walk with Christ through these daily reflections, there will be simple sacrifices suggested for you to complete. Reflecting on these will help us on our journey to return to Him. Both reflections and challenges are also offered in Spanish.
There are also two wonderful Lenten program offered through our parish subscription to Formed.org. Consider using one of these in your daily life, a small Lenten group, or with your family.
Formed: A Lent to Remember
A Lent to Remember explores the ways God reaches out to each of us with his mercy. Through Christ’s suffering on the cross in the Paschal Mystery and his perpetual reception of his people in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, God makes his love, his very self, present to us in the world. By reflecting on the Paschal Mystery and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite of Confession, A Lent to Remember communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love this Lent. Access here.
Forgiven explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Access here.
And here at Sacred Heart, we have our own Lenten traditions that we would love for you to be a part of this year.
