The season of Lent is a time of conversion and an opportunity to reflect on ways that we can turn to God with all our hearts. We are encouraged to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance during Lent.
Download an Act of Contrition prayer card, in English or Spanish, to share with the students in your Religious Education program. Explain that Catholics pray an Act of Contrition to express sorrow for our sins and a promise to try not to sin again. Encourage them to pray this prayer during the season of Lent and in preparation for celebrating the Sacrament of Penance.
