NEW: 2015 Lenten Reflections – Audio and Hardcopy

Lenten Podcast Archive

Lent is a time of prayer and renewal and an opportunity to refocus relationships with God.

This year, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18, and continues through Holy Saturday, April 4. An Easter reflection is also provided. CHA is offering its annual series of Lenten podcast reflections to enable you to reflect on the meaning of this season by downloading and listening to these weekly offerings.

The author of the 2015 series is Sr. Renee Yann, RSM, D. Min., a Sister of Mercy of the Mid-Atlantic Region. She is chief mission integration officer at Amerihealth Caritas in Philadelphia. At heart she is a poet and enjoys spiritual writing.

These reflections are offered as MP3 files for easy downloading and use. In addition, printable Word documents are included for each reflection so that participants can fully experience the message whether they prefer audio or visual delivery.
