Lent 2011

The religious season of Lent is about to begin next week, beginning with Ash Wednesday on March 9th. The Irish website Kandle has put together some resources to help the primary school teacher prepare the pupils during the season of Lent. For anyone not familiar with the Kandle website, it is the website of the Kildare and Leighlin Diocese which has been making religious classroom resources available to teachers for quite some time. These resources, especially those for Advent and Lent, are usually practical and are most suitable for use in the classroom.

Lenten Resources for 2011 are now available to download freely on the Kandle website. The 36 page Lenten pack contains resources for Ash Wednesday; a prayer service for Ash Wednesday; Wordsearches; Colouring Pages; Activities for each of the Sundays of Lent; Information on Feasts and Saints days that occur during Lent; Stories from the Bible; Mothers’ Day; Explanations and Activities for Holy Week; a Quiz; May the Month of Mary.

This Lenten Resource Pack is now available to download (.pdf file 3.93MB).
