Lenten Activities for Children, Youth and Adults

22 Feb

Ash Wednesday begins today and as in the past, I have delayed actually being intentional about my goals for Lent 2012.  Lent always brings surprises, but what am I willing to bring to this holy season?  Today’s post includes a variety of items for all ages including:

  • Pope Benedict XVI giving a brief meditation on the significance of Ash Wednesday and Lent,
  • Joe Paprocki, from Loyola Press, providing 40 daily activities for Lent 2012 that are primarily at-home activities but that could be a component in the formation sessions too,
  • Center for Ministry Development lesson plan for Middle School youth regarding temptation and how we respond to temptation,
  • Mark Hart explains why Catholics put ashes on their heads on Ash Wednesday
  • Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur provides a Station of the Cross for women
