Mission Together provides free Lent Materials each year. Our 2018 Lent Assemblies and Activities help explain this important season to children, whilst our Lenten Calendar encourages pupils to journey meaningfully towards Easter with a daily prayer, reflection or action. Scroll down to download these resources and for details of our 2018 charity drive ‘Together this Lent, Let’s Play Cricket!’
‘The Lent calendar is full of simple ways for the children to focus on helping others in need, and developing a sense of the wider world, and how we serve God when we serve others.’
Children’s catechist, Clifton Diocese
Our Lent Assemblies may be used alongside our 2018 project focus Together in Sri Lanka which can be found on the Teachers’ Resources page. This campaign tells the true story of Ajay, a cricket loving ten-year old boy living on a tea estate, whose life and that of his friends, is being changed with the support of Sister Ruby (R.G.S.) and the health and nutrition packs provided by Mission Together.
Inspired by Ajay’s love of cricket, this year we are asking schools and parishes to arrange a sponsored cricket match to raise money for children like Ajay, so that missionaries like Sister Ruby can continue to bring hope and health to the children living in poverty on the tea estates of Sri Lanka.

All of our materials offer an engaging approach for your Easter preparations, complement all Catholic R.E. programmes and uphold Catholic Teaching. They are also mindful of requirements set out in The Common Inspection Framework.
