Lent 2017 resources for parishes

Resources on this page were used to help promote the Bishops' Lent Appeal 2017 in parishes.

In 2017, our theme for the Bishops’ Lent Appeal was Your face, Lord, do I seek, which is about encountering the presence of Christ – including in the faces of others. Lent is the time for renewing our encounter with Christ through the Gospels, in the Sacraments and in our neighbours.

The parish Lenten materials for 2017 can be downloaded below. All lent 2017 material can also be found by going to the Resources filter page.
