Plan meals, almsgiving, and intercessions, plus prepare for all of the liturgical observances with this Lenten planner and study companion for Orthodox Christians! Organize your practical concerns for the season with dated calendars that include fasting, saints and feasts, then move into weekly studies on each Sunday and feast of the Great Fast. Each week's study includes a synopsis of the week and its thematic elements, the text of the readings, the hymns, and a set of questions for reflection and discussion. Click here for a video of the entire planner.
We have also included a set of forty Lenten Focus Cards based on the three pillars of the Lenten season: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
