Lenten Appeal 2020: ‘Light Your Lenten Path’, inspired by the Year of the Word
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has dedicated 2020 as a year of focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’. To help schools promote this initiative, the Catholic Children’s Society has devised a special 2020 Lenten Appeal ‘Light Your Lenten Path.’ Following the three themes of celebrating, living and sharing, the free resources encourage pupils to explore Bible passages and reflect on how God’s word can guide their day-to-day lives.
If you would like your school to participate in our 2020 Lenten Appeal please complete and return our registration form:Lenten Appeal 2020 Participation Form
All materials are free and will be delivered to your school in January. Participating primary schools will receive:
- Collection Boxes – one per family, child or class
- ‘Light Your Lenten Path’ activity sheets – one per child
PowerPoint presentations, lesson plans and worksheets will also be available to download from this website in the New Year, for both primary and secondary schools.
We would be very grateful if you could encourage pupils to gather as much support as possible, whether from home, in school or within their community. This year our CCS Day will be on Friday 3rd April. This is an opportunity for schools to join together and hold a non-school uniform day to increase the funds they raise and help support even more disadvantaged children and families.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our work please contact Kimberley Tough via the details on our contact us page
