It only takes a minute and your info will only be used for the Lenten Video Project
Beginning Monday, March 1, we'll send short videos (around 3 minutes each) to your inbox that we hope will help you reflect on relationship during your Lenten journey.
Community prayer and action are central to the Lenten experience. As you reflect on the daily videos, know that you are doing so with an entire community of faith-filled people like yourself.
It is important to respect the communal aspect of Lent. Community prayer and action are central to our Lenten experience. For instance, the signing of our foreheads with ashes on Ash Wednesday is a communal experience, where we enter into the season as a penitential community.
This year, we wanted to find a way to encourage as many people as possible to come together as a community and journey together during Lent. So, inspired by Matthew Kelly and the team at Dynamic Catholic with their Best Lent Ever daily video series, we created a Lenten video series of our own at St. Isidore. We have spent the last six months planning out what the Lenten Video Project (LVP) would be. The result is an inspiring series of videos created by the St. Isidore staff and delivered straight to your email (accessible elsewhere as well). These short videos are meant to help us reflect on our relationships with God and others this Lent.
Answers to all of your questions.
It’s an inspiring series of videos created by the St. Isidore Church staff sent straight to your email. These short videos will help you reflect on your relationship with God and others this Lent.
Rather than hosting a traditional parish mission as we have done in the past, we wanted to offer a community reflective opportunity that is easily accessible so as many people as possible can participate.
Just fill out the signup form above this section.
We are hoping to produce around 30 videos. The videos will be sent out Monday-Saturday beginning Monday, March 2.
The topics in the videos are divided into three segments focusing on relationships: our relationship with ourselves, with others, and with God. Topics include how do we deal with discouragement, showing gratitude, holding grudges, importance of worshiping in community, and living as children of God.
The videos are reflections shared by the St. Isidore staff. More than half of the team will be sharing reflections!
We know that your time is valuable, so each video will only be around three minutes long.
If you sign up after the series has started or you want to go back and watch previous videos, you will be able to do that on our *Lenten Video Project* web page or on our YouTube channel.
No! The topics in the *Lenten Video Project* are things that we all deal with. This is a great chance to share your faith with friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and random strangers you meet at the Coney Grille. Share away! We’ll be providing ways to share on Facebook and Instagram, and you can even invite a friend through the LVP website.
