Parish Lenten Resources

Though all of the resources on this site might be helpful for parishes and congregations, we offer these resources which are designed to make it easy to share these resources with our faith community.

We welcome the use of these resources with only two limits: no charge may be collected for their use and they may not be used on another web site. Links to this site or any of its resources are always encouraged.

In addition to the resources offered here, feel free to cut and paste any of these resources into parish bulletins or worship aids, or to copy for use with prayer or discussion groups. We simply request that each use of material from this site include an acknowledgement of its source:

"Taken from the Praying Lent pages of Creighton University's Online Ministries web site:
www.creighton.edu/CollaborativeMinistry/online.html. Used with Permission."

Thank you for being a partner in ministry with us in sharing these ministries with others.


Lenten Audio Retreat
The Lenten Audio Retreat may be made by individuals, listening to each of the retreat conferences at a computer, and praying with the material offered. The conferences may also be downloaded and the files may be burned to CD's or copyied to MP3 players.

Lenten sharing groups might be formed with members listening to each of the talks between sessions and then sharing the graces of their prayer at the weekly meeting.

Bulletin Inserts
These brief excerpts are taken from our Lenten resources, to support a community's Lenten Journey. Feel Free to "cut and paste" any of these texts for Parish Bulletinss or Worship Aids.

Printer Ready Newsletters
These one page, two sided, newletters reproduce some of our web resources in easy to duplicate pages. These newsletter type texts might be inserted in bulletins or distributed to faith sharing groups. They already contain an acknowledgement of their source.

Stations of the Cross Programs
Communities of a number of faith traditions are discovering the power of this centuries old mediation on the Passion and Death of Jesus. We have organized our Online Stations of the Cross into several formats that are easy to reproduce and distribute. They can be made advailable for people who wish to use them for making the stations privately or for the celebration of the Stations in common, on the Fridays of Lent.
