During Lent, we remember our call to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. To help Catholics enter into this time of reflection more fully, Catholic Charities of Central Florida has prepared the 2017 “40 Ways to Mercy calendar.”

This resource has practical, spiritual and inspiring ways to share God’s love through prayer, service and almsgiving.

Each day’s suggested act of mercy will offer you the opportunity to step outside yourself for a moment and walk with a brother or sister in need. Christ has assured us that whatever we do the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for Him (Matthew 25:40).

The calendar also includes resources to help guide you through Lent including a gratitude prayer and weekly catechism readings.

We invite you to make copies of this calendar for your parish and school community and invite you to share your witness to mercy on social media with #MercyCFL. To download the calendar, click here. If you need copies printed for your school or parish, email ewilson@orlandodiocese.org.
