Lenten Ideas

1.  Give a CD or Book to Each Family for Ash Wednesday or Easter

Give an incredible gift of Faith by giving a Catholic CD or book to every family for Ash Wednesday or Easter. Reach vibrant Catholics, including those who have never picked up a CD, as well as those who come to Mass only one or two times a year.


"We personally asked parishioners to donate for this cause. Within one week we had enough to order the 700 CDs! People were quick to donate and generous as they wanted to share the CDs with others." - Jen, St. Patrick's


"I used memorial money for a CD for each family. I placed a label on each CD that said 'Gift donated in memory of Andy.' I heard one say it was a wonderful way to honor Andy, and I know many think of Andy and pray for him when they hear the CD." - Fr. Paul Eberle, Sts. Peter and Paul

2.  Give One of Two CDs (or more) and Invite Exchanging

Give every family one of two CDs for Easter and invite people to listen throughout the week and exchange the CD for the other title the following weekend. (If using more titles, exchange another weekend or two, each time passing them to another person in the pew.) 


"This past weekend was amazing - the response was beautiful! We continue to hear wonderful stories from people who have been touched by "passing the spirit." - Eileen, St. Gregory the Great


3.  Offer Bundles with a CD for Each Week of Lent

Offer bundles of seven titles (ask a suggested donation of $25) and encourage people to listen to a CD a week for their Lenten devotion and one for Easter. If you don't have bundles made, you can even have them pick seven from your current inventory.   For a sample pulpit announcement, click here.


"I was amazed at the response to the bundle announcement. We had to reorder more for the next weekend!" - Jeri, St. Joseph's
