For each week of Great Lent, the Department of Christian Education has chosen a saint commemorated during that week whose life offers points for reflection. Families (or anyone who wishes to) can read the brief life of the saint, then use the questions, Scriptural comparisons, and reflective ideas to discover ways in which the saint’s life can inspire our own lives. A simple review of all six saints’ stories is given at the end. These reflections can be found here.

The DCE hopes this series of reflections will enrich families’ and all readers’ Lenten experience.
