What is Live Lent? Live Lent! is a small group process. Groups of 4-8 people will gather weekly for six weeks via Zoom videoconferencing; the sessions last an hour. Participants use the Live Lent! resource which guides them through prayer, reading of the upcoming Sunday Gospel, and discussion of the reading and its life application. Participating in a small group can help you better understand how God is working in your life and the lives of others. It provides an opportunity for fellowship. And, journeying with others can help you stay focused on Lent and be more disciplined in your faith practices.
Sessions (all groups meet via Zoom) will begin the week of February 14 and end the week of March 21. There is no cost to participate, but we do ask you to do your best to attend all the sessions.
How do I sign up? To participate, complete the registration form here. The registration deadline is —February 1.
