Some Lenten Ideas From Fr. Arisman
Do spiritual readings. Check out our Parish Library bookshelf. Come to Stations of the Cross. Bring your children; it is an awesome thing they can really be engaged in a real and profound way. Honestly, they love it.
Make sure your entire family, no matter the fight with your children, goes to Mass every Sunday. Come to daily Mass, maybe at least once a week. Come to the soup suppers.
Come to a Bible study or the “99” series. Read the Scriptures daily, use Fr. Mike Schmitz Bible in a Year podcast to do so. Check out the Formed.org website and app and the multitudes of things there.
Fast extra. Give extra alms. Come to the Liturgy of the Hours on Sunday evenings or the Rosary group on Monday nights. Join a small group or start one with a few friends. Come to Wednesday adoration.
Go to confession a few times during Lent on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
