15 Lenten Printables

While I enjoy creating Catholic Printables, I’m always excited to see what others are creating to foster prayer and devotion and faith formation in the home. This year’s Catholic Mom Bundle for Lent is an awesome collection of Catholic Resources and I’m going to feature just over half of them in this post. There are even more resources available in the Bundle, but I’m focusing on the ones that grabbed my attention, particularly as printables for Lent. I’ve grouped them into Activity Packs, Journals/Programs and Prayer.

These Passion Play and Stations of the Cross crafts can help to express and reflect on the events of this very important week, beginning with the Entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the triumphant Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Egg Carton Passion Play Crafts for Holy Week

Egg Carton Passion Play

A few years ago I was making these Egg Carton characters, inspired by  Michele Made Me.

These are SO CUTE and fun to make!!

I decided to start my Egg Carton Communion of Saints with Mother Mary. Michele has an Egg Carton Nativity set that is awesome and I only strayed a little to make my Mother Mary. I needed to add her signature blue veil and a shiny halo.

Back On Track for Lent with a Custom Lenten Prayer Journal!

I have however, been prayer journaling again and I think some of our new tools in the Arma Dei Shoppe have been helping!

I just added some new stamps in the shop!

With our own custom Super Saints artwork for over 60 Saints, I’m pleased to be able to add new Saints Stamps to the shop as they are requested by customers. I was happy to include the St Benedict medal graphic behind St Benedict’s head. It almost looks like a very specialized halo.

Every year I start off in pursuit of the best Lent evaa (queue any one of my kids quoting Matt Kelly) and I start out with resolutions for giving up things, taking on things and elaborate programs for my kids. This year will be no different, although I feel a little better prepared!
