What We Do in LENT
Children readily understand that Lent is a time to get ready for Easter. But they may not understand why we start out with ashes on our foreheads, don’t eat meat on Fridays in Lent or give up things like candy for 40 days. This interactive sticker book presents the central Catholic practices of Lent and, most importantly, explains why we do what we do—to draw closer to God.
With the help of a parent or teacher, children apply colorful stickers as they learn about this sacred season of the Church Year.
