What is the Meaning of Lent?

A PowerPoint Presentation on
the life-changing 40-day
pilgrimage to Easter

Description: Why and how Lent should make a significant difference in our lives. As it gently teaches about the mercy of God that's given to us in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, it raises awareness that we are sinners and Lent is a time of becoming more aware of the sins we need to overcome. It includes a fun "parable" to provide food for discussion and deeper reflection. And it provides the meaning of Ash Wednesday, fasting and abstinence, prayer, and almsgiving -- and even explains why we abstain from meat.

Instantly downloadable!

Ideas for use: Designed as a great introduction to the RCIA Period of Purification and Enlightenment, it's also good for children's and adults' Religious Education classes.

Mac users: you must have PowerPoint for Mac installed to run this. TechSoup has a special discount for churches.

Licensing Information: Each PPT comes with a single-parish license granting you permission to display the PowerPoint presentation in your classrooms, which provides unlimited use for unlimited years in one parish.
