Lent is a time to work at growing spiritually in preparation to celebrate the death of Jesus and his resurrection at
Easter. This process involves growing in many ways. It is not always easy.
Scripture: ephesians 4:15-16 We must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ from whom the whole body joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 520: Jesus presents himself as our model. He is the perfect person who invites us to become his disciples and follow him.
Through this theme children will come to learn and understand that lent is a time to grow in love to be more like Jesus and to look forward to Easter.
