LiveSimply Lent Challenge
In order to achieve CAFOD's LiveSimply Award, we have to demonstrate how we are changing our lives in the light of Pope Francis' appeal to us. Our first main activity was the 'Lenten Challenge', during which, at the beginning of every week, we were all invited to choose one task from each of the 3 categories of 'prayer', 'fasting' and almsgiving and then place a sticker in each of the appropriate columns at the end of the week, once we'd completed our tasks before choosing another the following Sunday. People of all ages joined in enthusiastically until we were interrupted by Lockdown!
When the church reopens, we'll pick up the theme again. Meanwhile, are you living more simply and treading more lightly on the earth as a result of the Covid-19 crisis? Let's continue the conversation through these strange times as the planet breathes more easily as a result of the lockdown.
