Youth & Family Lent Resources

Like just about everyting else in 2020, Lent is going to be different this year.
There will be no coin boxes for the poor or the annual Family Penance Service or watching the Confirmation class present the Living Stations. However, we are all about finding the opportunities in this pandemic so we've compiled several reflections and at-home activities you can use to prepare this holy season.


What is Lent?
Lent is the time of year when Christians prepare for Easter. It lasts for 40 days*. There are three tenents of Lent: Fasting, Prayer and Almsgiving.

Lent Basics:

  • The 40 Days from Ash Wednesday (2/17/21) to Easter Sunday (4/4/21)
  • Three aspects of Lent
  • In addition to abstaining or giving up meat on Fridays, Catholics (ages 18-59) traditionally fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by eating only one small meal
  • Traditional Lenten Activities include Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings (7pm at St. Eulalia's)
  • Purple is traditionally the liturgical color of Lent. 

* You have always learned that Lent commemorates the 40 days that Jesus spent praying in the desert before his public ministry. If, however, you actually count the days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, you’ll realize there are actually 46 days! What? Yes, there are 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. Because each Sunday of the year, however, is a grand celebration and commemoration of the Resurrection of Jesus, we don’t count them in the 40 days of penance. There are six Sundays between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. So, by subtraction, we are left with 40 days.
