We are Pillars of Lent
‘Give alms…Pray to your Father…Fast without a gloomy face…’ (Matthew 6:1-18)
There are 3 pillars of Lent: Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving.
During Lent, we are called to get closer to God and the Pillars of Lent help us to do just that.
Prayer–when we pray, we let God know we believe in Him. When we pray we learn to feel God’s love in our hearts.
Fasting— Fasting takes a lot of effort and dedication as we offer up to Our Lord the food we’re not eating. Perhaps you’ve decided to sacrifice eating snacks between meals or giving up a favourite treat. Fasting is difficult for everyone but is one way
Almsgiving–We are encouraged to do charitable acts every day and to pay attention to the needs of others.
We hope to approach Easter Sunday with hearts overflowing with love for God.
The students worked in their teams to create tableau (frozen picture) demonstrating what the 3 Pillars of Lent looks like. Check out some of their work:
