Into the Desert 40-Day Lenten Challenge
As we begin the Lenten season, the Consistory Offcie of Youth and Young Adult Ministries in assosiation with the Youth Departments of the Assembly of the Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North America is pleased to once again announce the Into the Desert 40-Day Lenten Challenge.
Into the Desert is a 40-day Lenten blog beginning on Clean Monday, which encourages our youth and young adults to fully participate in Great Lent. The blog will offer daily scriptural readings, saints of the day, meditations, and challenges to help better prepare our young people for Pascha.
The blog is designed to motivate and inspire young people to follow the daily readings and materials offered by the Church during this time of reflection. Into the Desert offers a great opportunity to challenge your youth or young adult group to take on the 40-day journey as a team. Schedule weekly meetings to discuss the daily posts, address questions and struggles, and encourage prayer and reflection throughout the journey.
