This Lenten season, let’s take time to reflect on creation and those who share it, and to lament, pray, commit to act, and sing with people around the world.

All the calendar material is in English, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
A one page version of the calendar with 40 actions is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.
