Resources on this page are to help promote the Bishops’ Lent Appeal 2013 in parishes.
Core parish Lenten materials, including the Lenten envelopes, were mailed to parishes January 23-25.
The Caritas prayers for each of the six weeks of Lent are downloadable below. They are available as a Word document for inserting into parish bulletins or other resources, and as powerpoint slides for projection during Mass and other events.
If you are speaking about Lent after Communion or in a reflection after the Gospel, the Notes for speaking and Slides for speaking (powerpoint) below will assist you. Please feel free to adapt for your purposes.
Notes on the meaning and reason of almsgiving (giving to those in need) in Lent can be downloaded below.
Details and downloable copies of the Lent Reflection Programme are available on our main Resources - Lent page here.
Any other resources for parishes will be uploaded here as they become available. For queries about the Lent Appeal or use of the resources below, please contact our Lent Campaign Coordinator Maria Sinnott, freephone 0800 22 10 22.
