Family activities for Lent

FLASHBACK: Parents Anthony and Timitra Williams lead their children in an activity at last year’s AFLC Lenten Retreat for families.

As we begin Lent this year, what can parents do to influence their children’s spirituality?

It is important that parents spend time with their children, teaching them important life lessons: simplicity and showing concern. Through the parenting programme offered by the AFLC, parents are given the necessary knowledge and skills to interact effectively with their children.

Pope Francis in his 2018 Lenten message encourages us “to take up the Lenten journey with enthusiasm, sustained by almsgiving, fasting and prayer. If, at times, the flame of charity seems to die in our own heart, know that this is never the case in the heart of God! He constantly gives us a chance to begin loving anew.”
