Our Family Lenten Journey
On Ash Wednesday, we hide the Alleluia. I just made a simple banner of card stock, gold flowers, gold glitter and yarn. I had a plain wooden box which I decorated with a cross. For a nice explanation on hiding or burying the Alleluia go to amongstlovelythings.com Thanks Sarah!
We of course have our "Walk the Lenten Path Magnetic Calendar" found here at Gaels Crafty Treasures.
To help us give Alms we have the Rice bowl provided by our church. For more info on the CRS Rice Bowl look here.
For Prayers we have our family prayer jar. I used an empty candy jar and decorated it with some Irish flare. I found 40 inspiring prayers at weelittlemiracles.com Thank you Erin! I printed the prayers on purple card stock, cut into strips and then placed them into the jar.
On Easter Sunday we can hang the Alleluia banner to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ.
Wishing you a prayerful, giving and loving Lenten journey with your family this year. God Bless
