  1. Here’s one:

    A Lenten Calendar for children and youth.This year, the design is in the form of a board game and journey. The calendar is 11″ x 17″ and can be printed in-house on either a color or black and white copier. Or, you can have them printed at your local printer. The calendar connects our blessings to the needs of the
    world. You can use it to collect pennies for Haiti or other needs.

    The calendar is at http://www.myfaithmylife.org under “Favorite Calendar.”

  3. Hi Bosco,

    Thanks for this awesome resource.

    I thought you, and your readers, might like to know that I’m posting resources for worship, based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the whole of Lent (and the rest of the year). They include reflections on the Scriptures, prayers, hymn suggestions and links to other helpful resources on the web. find it here: http://www.sacredise.com/lectionary


  4. Does anyone ever look at the Didache for Lent? It is so early and beautiful and really goes to roots of our faith.

    I’m so gld to find this site. Oh, I see, Anglican Communion. there is one just starting in Kokomo Indiana, in a storefront.

    I really like this site. Thanks.
