Still wondering what to do for Lent? Here are some suggestions:
• This Lenten Season, the AMSSND Office of Justice, Peace, & Integrity of Creation invites you to participate in a journey of prayer and fasting for a conversion of heart and habits. The resource focuses on the new JPIC commitment areas: Climate Change and Water, Human Trafficking, Immigration, Racism, and Haiti. Please click here to view the resource.
• Once again, the Holy Days and Holidays Committee of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition is offering prayer resources for use during the Lenten Season. This year’s series, Lenten Values: Springing into Action, will invite participants to reflect on nine values that ground the work of immigration justice. Each prayer will feature a brief reflection on scripture, stories, and more. Sign up here to receive the materials once they're ready.
• Lenten Reflection Guide 2021: Brothers and Sisters All | Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (maryknollogc.org) In this guide, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns offers reflections from Maryknoll missioners, questions, prayers, and actions based on each week's Scripture readings in light of the themes in Fratelli Tutti, which include dialogue, solidarity, reconciliation, and peace. The guide begins the first Sunday of Lent, February 21, and offers weekly reflections through Palm Sunday, March 28.
