Lent is swiftly approaching, and what better time than now, as one of our spiritual resolutions for the next 40 days (46 including Sundays), to commit to catechizing ourselves and our children more deeply in the Catholic faith?
Catholic parents want to infuse their faith into the daily lives of themselves, their children, and their families as a whole, but it can be difficult to figure out the best – and most lasting – way in which to do so. We try and start traditions, but sometimes they’re overly complicated and then, after a short time, they fall away.
With this in mind – and with the overall goal of The Catholic Mama to deepen and defend our faith, as well as raise children who are confidently Catholic – I’m excited to announce my inaugural production for TCM –
The 7-Day Catholic Spirituality Kickstart, a minimalist at-home family retreat to grow in faith, supercharge your Lent, and catechize your family.
Designed to be easy to implement AND sustainable, this family retreat is geared for both grownups and children, a way to understand our Catholic faith more deeply and to energize you as Lent progresses. Minimalist and simple, you’ll find an easy-to-follow plan for a meaningful first week of Lent (plus ideas on how to continue throughout this season and beyond!)
What’s Included in The 7-Day Catholic Spirituality Kickstart
- Daily Mass readings, curated Catholic Catechism readings, and Baltimore Catechism Q&A for children for the first week of Lent (2/26/20-3/3/20)
- A schedule for the first week of Lent with fasting, Mass attendance, and confession included
- 10 Delicious and Simple Recipes for the Wednesday and Friday fast/abstention
- Exclusive audio recording detailing the week’s program with FAQs, the history of Lent, and how to prepare for and start Lent with the best plan possible
- Printable examination of consciences for spouses/ parents and children to help prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation
I hope you’ll join me on this at-home retreat, and I’m so excited to be able to help further the faith of fellow Catholics, as a supplement and continuation of this blog and The Catholic Mama podcast.
