Lent Madness Begins!

As the creators of Lent Madness say, “If you’re looking for a Lenten discipline that is fun, educational, occasionally goofy, and always joyful, join the Lent Madness journey. Lent needn’t be all doom and gloom. After all, what could be more joyful than a season specifically set aside to get closer to Jesus Christ?”  

 

More information about this innovative, interactive online learning opportunity can be found at https://www.lentmadness.org/   All Saints’, St. Thomas in Mamaroneck and St. John's in Larchmont hold a local competition, the winner of which receives winnings to donate to their favorite charitable organization.   For $21.00 you receive a book with information about the 32 saints who are in competition for this year’s Golden Halo as well as the chance to donate the winnings which currently total over $900 to your favorite charity.  It’s fun, educational and is doing good. 

 

 Contact Tami (Rev.Tami.Burks@gmail.com)  for more information.  Not feeling competitive?  That’s ok, you can still participate by voting for your favorite saint every day and seeing who will win this year’s Golden Halo!
