There are fun activities for Families to do together this Lenten season by using Faithful Families for Lent, Easter, & Resurrection by Traci Smith (we also used this book last year). If you do not have a copy, please contact Tammy Palermo ( While doing this activity, it would be fun if you shared photos and/or your experience with Tammy either through email or social media.
