This Lent at the Cathedral, we are hoping you will be inspired each day to love one another, be kind to yourself and others, and use whatever tools you have to give back to the world for the greater good. This can seem like a huge task, but big things can happen when just do small things intentionally.
I encourage you to watch the short video below to explain what Ash Wednesday is and the start of Lent, and then read on below for resources for you to do at home.
This year we have our own resource-created Lauren Odile Pinkney, All the Flowers of Lent. This resource includes daily activities, prayers and challenges to help guide children and families through Lent with intentional acts of love and kindness to themselves, their community and the world around them. It comes with an accompanying resource which has weekly prayer for the family and instruction on how to build a focal altar in your home. This resource is black and white and designed to be printed at home and coloured in.
