We are pleased to present a Sunday School Lenten Retreat Guide developed by the Educational Enhancement team. In order to provide a consistent education experience throughout the diocese, it is encouraged for each region/parish to conduct a Sunday School Lenten retreat based on the theme presented here. These are resources, templates, topics, guides, and activities that can be used to conduct such a Lenten Retreat for your Sunday School students at the regional or parish level.
“Jesus My Healer”
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me and I shall be saved, for You are my praise ~ Jeremiah 17:14
The retreat will be focused on four healing miracles of Christ:
- Healing of the bent woman (Luke 13:10-17)
- Healing of the blind man (John 9:1-41)
- Healing of the leper (Luke 5:12-16)
- The raising of Lazarus from the dead (John 11:1-44)
