Lenten Challenges: Week 3 - Almsgiving

Monday: Almsgiving


Beginner: Find 5 items in your home that you can do without, but are still fairly new, and donate them to an organization that can use them (like a homeless shelter, etc.)
Intermediate: Give up an item that you pay for but you can do without, and with the money that you save, donate to charity, whether that be to your parish, a local Catholic organization or an overseas mission group.
Advanced: Every paycheque you receive this Lent, donate 10% of it to charity, whether that be to your parish, a local Catholic organization or an overseas mission group.

Tuesday: The Prayer


Wednesday: Reflection


In what areas of my life do I own “too much stuff”? What can I let go of to help me focus on God more?

Thursday: Tips



Add your almsgiving into your monthly expenses, just like you would with your bills.
What are your tips for almsgiving?

Friday: Sharing


How did you share what you have with those in need this week?

These challenges are wonderful. Would it be possible to have them in a PDF or other form so they can be printed up?

Hi Sue,
Glad you are enjoying the challenges. The best way to print is to copy and paste the text into a Word document or Notepad and print from there. Hope that helps!
