Lent is a time where we prepare to celebrate the great feast of Easter by looking at our lives and trying to see how we can follow God more closely.

Our family prayer resources offer a colouring template and some activities or prayer to share as a family at home. These encourage us to look to God, but also to take notice of the world around us.

We also have a Easter family prayer resource to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
