Lent focuses on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. As a parish we want to suggest a few ideas:
· 3:00 OUR FATHER: Set an alarm each day to go off at 3:00pm and remind you to say just 1 Our Father. Pray for our parish and each other.
· HALLOW APP: If you have a smart phone, download the free version of the Hallow App which has tons of prayer tools. Join parishioners in #Pray40 this Lent and use it daily to grow in prayer. Hallow is a freemium app, with a variety of daily prayers available for free, and the option to purchase a subscription to premium content.
Pray every day this Lent with Hallow – download from their website here.
Consider signing up for a daily Lenten email from Bishop Barron or checking these resources for a daily reflection:
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Join us in person or online to pray this devotion. Stations will take place in the worship space Fridays beginning Feb 19th at 3:00pm. The first week’s Stations will be livestreamed and we encourage parishioners to use the recorded video (will be available on our YouTube channel) to pray them at your own convenience thereafter.
