I know that during Lent and the Easter season that the main thing that I want our children to learn and understand is that God loves us so much that he sent his one and only son Jesus to live in this sinful world and that he then died on the cross for each and every one of us!

Most Catholic Churches during Lent pray the Stations of the Cross every Friday remembering the Passion of Christ. Usually these services are held in the late evening which means we are not able to go as a family due to little ones bedtime.

- Praying at Home
- Teaching with Engaging Resources
- Praying within the Community
