Welcome to Your Lenten Evening

Lent is a call to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving to prepare for the passion and resurrection of our Lord. Enjoy a curated evening together to start intentionally living out these Lenten disciplines to detach from worldly distractions, amend your lives, and grow closer to the Lord.

Before you get started, take steps to make the most of your Lenten evening:

1.

Treat your night at home with the same intentionality as a "night out" - this means putting away your phone, reducing distractions, and focusing on each other.

2.

Have kids? Give them an early dinner, put them to bed early, or give them an alternative activity such as a movie or game to keep them busy.Click here for some other ideas.

3.

Be flexible! Your Lenten evening at home might be different than your usual routine. Don’t let a few mishaps or small roadblocks get in the way of growing closer to each other and the Lord.

Start the evening with a Lenten supper!
