The Catholic Faith Education Newsletter for Lenten Activities 2012 (February, March, and April) is now online at http://www.silk.net/RelEd/ezine1.htm. This has many resources for Children’s Liturgy and Sunday School. There are resources for Lent and a large number of commentaries, homilies, clip art images, coloring pages, and puzzles on the gospels.
Gilles Cote does an excellent job of pulling all these resources together for you. I am thankful for all of you reading my blog and visiting my website: www.joanyedwards.com.
Lenten Season begins Wednesday, February 22, 2012.
Easter is on Sunday, April 8, 2012.
Here are two polls: Are you giving up something for Lent 2012? Are you doing something special for God during Lent 2012? I hope you’ll take time to vote in these polls.
Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent. For more information, http://www.americancatholic.org/features/lent/faqle9902.asp.
May you grow closer to God and to others in your life.
