Celebrating Lent Together at Home
We enter this Lent differently than ever before. The traditional practices of Lent: PRAY, FAST, GIVE ALMS have taken on a much deeper and more spacious meaning in our lives as a world community. As a way to weave together these three practices, Sisters Maureen McGrath, OP (Adrian), Joan Scanlon, OP, and Teresa Tuite, OP, invite you to celebrate Lent together at home via ZOOM. This online Lenten observance will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 17, and continue on consecutive Wednesdays (February 24, March 3, 10, 17, 24) at 7:00 PM EST. Each program will include a common prayer, followed by a guest chef who will demonstrate a simple recipe that can be used for one of your own Lenten meals. The recipe will be provided for viewers’ use. The program will end with a short closing prayer or song. Each session is independent, so please join when your own schedule allows it. No registration is needed. If you are able to join us, click here.
