About the Lent Project:

The Lent Project is an invitation to challenge yourself to grow closer to Christ during Lent, with help from friends along the way. Students who decide to participate will make a commitment to:

  • Attend weekly sessions focusing on the life of Christ and different forms of prayer. 
  • Pray twenty minutes a day, every day.
  • Participate weekly in a faith-sharing group of peers for support and accountability. Faith-sharing group meeting times will be decided at the first meeting.
