Lenten Missionary Journey

This adaptable program introduces the vocation of missionaries who serve in multiple contexts.  The journey offers seven distinct stories that each emphasize a part of the Lenten journey to the Cross and Resurrection.

MCA Collection Boxes for Lent

Encourage your students to make a sacrifice for children like themselves in mission dioceses.  Also help them learn more about what their gifts can do with the Offering Activity/Actividad de Ofrenda.  Contact Megan Mio to order MCA collection boxes.

English/Spanish Lenten Calendar

Each day of Lent has a reflection, activity or challenge.  This calendar goes perfect with collection boxes or another missionary lesson plan.  Keep Mission in mind the entire Lenten Season!
