As we prepare to enter the holy season of Lent we are called to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Catholic Charities of Central Florida’s 40 Ways in 40 Days calendar answers this call and offers opportunities each day to share God’s love with our brothers and sisters in need through Acts of Prayer, Acts of Service, and Acts of Giving.
From praying for our staff and clients to serving a meal to the homeless, each of the 40 Ways will “offer the opportunity to reflect upon the very heart of Christian life: charity” (Pope Benedict XVI’s Lenten Message, 2012). Here is how to get started:
- Download the calendar.
- Email the volunteer coordinator or call 888-658-2828 x2020 to participate in any of the activities.
- Log your hours of service to help us reach our Jubilee Year goal of 50,000 Hours of Service.
- Share you experience with us! Send photos or reflections of your service for our facebook and website. Tweet #40ways to join the online conversation.
