This hilarious Episcopal offering is fun for the whole family! During the season of Lent (which often coincides with March madness) participate in a choosing the Saint who will “win” the Golden Halo by receiving votes from folks like yourself!
We can learn much from those who have come before us as faithful witnesses to the Gospel. And they always seem to come back to this: "Love God, love neighbor." Each one of these holy men and women did just that in their own time and in their own circumstances and they can inspire us to do the same in our own day. Like us, the saints weren't perfect—but it's freeing to remember that perfection isn't the goal but faithfulness. Lent Madness helps make real these heroes of the faith by reminding us that they were living, breathing human beings not lifeless statues or distant figures immortalized yet immobilized in stained glass.
To participate, you may pick up a booklet in the parish hall, or sign up to receive daily emails from Forward Movement. On Sunday mornings, we’ll have an opportunity to compare our Lent Madness brackets! Lent Madness is an offering of Forward Movement. Best known as the publishers of Forward Day by Day, a daily devotional published since 1935.
