Welcome to Lent! What is the significance of the first Friday in Lent? How can families grow in faith during the Lenten Season? What are some opportunities for married couples to extend their marriage through prayer, fasting and almsgiving? How can I make the self-sacrificing season of Lent ‘fun’ or ‘spontaneous’ for my kids? How is the truth about God’s plan for families revealed in the Ten Commandments? What is the theology behind the Lenten practices? How can we extend ourselves, as a family, during Lent to our community?
Fitting in family prayer during Lent is like setting up an exercise schedule… it requires a plan! –Kari
