In this packet you will find 46 different actions to do during the days of Lent to help grow as a family in your faith. The three areas we focus on during Lent are: prayer, fasting, and alms-giving. This focus helps us grow in our own prayer life, reminds us to give to others, and fasting reminds us of our humility. Although there are 40 days in Lent, there are 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. There are 3 blank strips to add in 3 of your own activities or prayers to the countdown. Cut out the strips, make a chain, and hang in a prominent place at home. Each day, take off a strip, do the activity, and grow in your faith as you countdown to Easter!
