Lenten Video Project 2021
We are coming off of a 12-month period where millions of people have been affected and hundreds of thousands of people have lost their lives to a global pandemic. There is political unrest, racial injustice, catastrophic natural disasters, a record loss of jobs, closures of businesses, restaurants, and churches, and so much more. We have all probably prayed for an end, and sometimes it can feel like our prayers aren’t being heard.
Despite all of this, guess what?
So... what is theLenten Video Project?

Recent Reflections (2020)
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.
What is it?
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.
Why are we doing this?
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.
How many videos?
We are hoping to produce around 20 videos. The videos will be sent out Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday beginning Monday, February 22, 2021.
What are the videos about?
The topics in the 2021 Lenten Video Project will be about different prayers and ways that we can pray together. Types of prayer include rote prayer (Our Father, Hail Mary, etc.), informal prayers, music, poems, meditation and more.
Who is on the videos?
The videos are reflections shared by the St. Isidore staff. More than half of the team will be sharing reflections!
How long are the videos?
We know that your time is valuable, so each video will only be around three minutes long.
What if I miss a video?
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.
Are the videos just meant for St. Isidore?
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.
