Lent in schools

For Lent 2015 the theme is Light a fire in the heart of the world taken from Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

The primary purpose of this year’s Lenten resources is to educate young people about the vulnerability of nations to natural disasters.  The aim of Caritas and its partners in the Pacific and in the Philippines, is to go beyond the stage of simple material distribution of basic supplies to rebuilding in such a way that communities are less vulnerable to future events.

We will be mailing the Lent in Schools resource pack early December to all Catholic schools. The resources are available here.

 

Don’t forget to mark the date for the Caritas Challenge 27-28 March 2015.
