Liturgical Coordinators' Gathering - January 9, 2007

Now that you've almost recovered from the Christmas weekend marathon, the liturgical calendar throws us another challenge. Ash Wednesday comes early this year—February 21. That’s right around the corner! Yikes, we aren’t even finished with Christmas yet! Are you ready for Lent? And the Triduum?

You will come away from this meeting with:

  • 7 suggestions of a parish-wide fast for Lent;
  • A sample parish reconciliation service for Lent that includes the baptized candidates seeking full initiation;
  • Simple ideas to make your scrutinies awesome!;
  • A lenten night prayer for families to pray together;
