Lent with the Saints

Lent with the Saints - 40 holy people to accompany you during Lent - Pierre Toussaint, Kateri Tekakwitha, Maximilian Kolbe pictured

Spend Lent with the saints this year, with the aid of our downloadable handout featuring 40 holy men and women. Let their lives inspire you to courage, service, surrender, and fidelity. They will help you, as you journey with your family and faith community, to grow with them in faith, hope, and love.

The saints are divided into four groups:

  • those who changed Church or society;
  • strong women;
  • martyrs; and
  • little-known holy ones.

Through the examples of St. Teresa of Ávila, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Lawrence Ruiz, Venerable Pierre Toussaint, and more, be inspired in prayer and action this Lent.

Learn more about the saints with books from Loyola Press.

  1. Wonderful ideas for Lent. I do feel we must let our children know more about the Holy men and women who offered their lives for God.
