Lent is a season that lasts 40 days (excluding Sundays). It starts on Ash Wednesday and ends the Saturday before Easter, which in 2021 is March 17-April 3. Ideas here are for people of all ages to observe Lent through hands-on activities.
Pretzels have had a place in Lent for centuries. You can learn more and try your hand at baking pretzels at this website.
Taking Faith Home
This resource shares ideas for caring conversations, devotions, prayers, blessings, service ideas and more.

A large number of resources for the seasons of Lent and Easter have been collected by faith formation staff with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
