Lenten Offerings

1) SFX’s Carbon Fast Calendar: SFXEnvironmentMinistry@gmail.com

Back by popular demand. This is our third year producing a daily Lenten calendar with inspirational quotes from Laudato Si’ and other sources, and with practical actions one can take to go on a “carbon fast” to lessen one’s CO2 footprint. Daily themes are Sustenance Sundays, Mindful Mondays, Turnaround Tuesdays, Wisdom Wednesdays, Thankful Thursdays, Footprint Fridays and Simple Saturdays. We thank Mary Jane Gocher who does the major work for this calendar. Here is the link to our Lenten Calnedar SFX EnvMin Lenten Calendar 2021.

2) Global Catholic Climate Movement’s Lenten Program: https://laudatosilent.org/

The Global Catholic Climate Movement, GCCM, is offering an online Lenten Program with weekly themes based on Laudato Si’ followed by a week of concrete action suggestions. Weekly themes include consumerism, meat, electricity, plastic and advocacy. Overlaid on these themes are Reflection, Repentance, Renewal and Community.

Journeying Lent Together

People are encouraged to participate in the GCCM Lenten program as a group; if you would like to be part of an online group on a weekly basis, starting Feb. 20 please email us by Feb. 15 at SFXEnvironmentMinistry@gmail.com. This may lead to the formation of an ongoing Laudato Si Circle, a monthly gathering for prayer and reflection.
