New Wine // Lent 2023 for Kids
This year’s theme is about allowing Jesus to help change us, preparing us for Easter! We created a book, New Wine // Lent 2023 for Kids, to help your child walk through Lent and learn all the ways Jesus is going to help them grow closer to Him. These forty days are a special time to talk about Jesus with your child and to show him or her that making time for prayer is really important. Jesus loves your child and longs for his or her little heart to be open to Him.
“We are the grapes! If we let Jesus inside our hearts, He will change us and help us grow in virtue, in good habits, and in loving Him more.” // Note to Children
Our book is quite simple: every week we take time to pray with Sacred Scripture and answer questions, read a brief reflection, work on memorizing and re-writing Scripture, pray a traditional prayer and write their own prayer, answer questions after looking at sacred art, and do two activities. All the work is done for you, right inside this book.
Our Theological Editor, Susanna Spencer, has checked over everything to ensure it is correctly in-line with Church teaching.
