  6. Closing prayer

Three format options:

  • Print double-sided on 8.5" x 14" paper (legal size in the U.S.) and fold once to make booklets for each week.
  • Print on 8.5" x 11" paper and staple in packets (three pages per week).

    1st Sunday of Lent

    Posted by LuAnn on Feb 16th 2024

    We have only had one session thus far, but our group is very verbal and many ideas are brought out and discussions go very well.

    I found the weekly reflections and discussion questions concise and meaningful. There was also enough leeway to add to the content and questions.

    I had already used the Advent issue and so was very comfortable moving into Lent.
