This retreat material was developed using the Lenten scriptures from the Revised Common Lectionary, Year B. The reflections, liturgies, and creative activities included in the retreat booklet could be used for personal or group worship and prayer at any time of the year.
The retreat books, on-line support, and art supplies are no longer available, but you can request a free PDF of the retreat materials by filling out the order form or using the contact form.
