Live Your Best Lent at Visitation

Lent gives us time to think and reflect on how we are responding to Jesus’ call to love God and to love our neighbor. We recognize our need to change and to repent when we have sinned or not done our best. We ask God for a change of heart that we may live more fully and joyfully as Jesus has commanded us.
 

Lent is a time of grace when we FAST from what distracts us from following the Gospel, what distracts us from loving and growing in our faith. We turn to God and strive to deepen our relationship with him through PRAYER. We reach out to those in need through ALMSGIVING.


Make decisions, as individuals or as a family, about fasting, praying, and almsgiving throughout the Lenten season. Keep it simple and age appropriate. Gather some visuals to help you remember your Lenten commitments: a cross on or near your table, a purple cloth near the cross or your Bible, etc.

 

Visitation offers several opportunities to Live Your Best Lent.

The Daily Brief for Lent is a series of daily meditations based on the daily readings and read by our very own Visitation priests. We invite you to take 5-6 minutes of your day to listen and reflect. Watch in full screen, or even close your eyes. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, you can find the Daily Briefs here.

Lent Unplugged: Beginning Tuesday, February 20, we will be offering Lent Unplugged. It is an hour long, here at the church, from 7 PM to 8 PM, time for quiet meditation with music and guided prayer, meant to help people reflect upon their life especially during the season of Lent. You are welcome to drop in for a few minutes, or to come for 1/2 hour, as long as you wish. 

(Tuesdays in the church-  2/20, 2/27, 3/5, 3/12, 3/19)
