What do you do during Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter? For Christians, Lent is the time to remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the Wilderness, facing challenge and temptation. It is a time to reflect on God’s purpose for our life.

In recent years, many Christians have adapted this noble tradition to become more mindful of – and reduce - their impacts on Creation.

The Grace of Place

St Columban's Mission Society have hosted the production of this beautiful resource for schools and parish groups, suitable in Christian contexts generally. Each PDF has a socially and spiritually sensitive reflection, and ends with a gentle suggestion for further action.
