About the Webinar:

As Lent approaches, most Catholic parishes remain either shutdown or at significantly reduced capacity.

Without the fellowship of a Friday Fish Fry, the spiritual growth that may come from praying the Stations of the Cross as a parish, or many of the other edifying communal Lenten practices that are such a beautiful part of our Catholic faith, how will your parish serve into this moment?

Join Communio’s National Director of Church Strategy, Jared Smyth, will walk Catholic leaders through a new digital outreach strategy and resources parishes can leverage during this season to support the spiritual growth of couples and families – both inside your membership and those in the surrounding community not already connected to your parish.

During the webinar, we’ll hear about Communio’s new Lenten digital outreach and engagement kits and how your parish can leverage these resources as effective and timely forms of evangelization. Modelled off Communio’s popular “digital date night” kit concept, these new Lenten resources are geared for either couples or families and include Lenten dinner recipes, edifying short film content, family game night ideas, a Lenten “Habit Trackers”, and devotionals.
