"Why Do Catholics Do That" is a new series that is geared specifically towards Middle and High School Students. This Lenten version helps students understand the basics of the Lenten Season.

Topics include:
The Liturgical Calendar

Lenten Season

Ash Wednesday




Sacrament of Reconciliation




Holy Week (What we celebrate each day)


This guided and interactive digital activity is perfect to assign for independent work or may be done as a whole class activity. There is a question and /or reflection slide after each of the seven sections of content. You can assign this activity all at once or break it into chunks.

The most fruitful parts of this activity are the reflection questions that lead the student to make a connection to their own lives and helps to move the concepts from their heads to their hearts!

Please Note: I have also included links to three short videos. These are included as a “bonus” as I cannot be sure that the links will always be valid. You do not need to view the videos to gain any content knowledge. I just use them as an overview or review and included them for you.
