Caritas Lenten Resources

“Caritas Diocese of Brentwood exists to support and encourage the living out of Catholic Social Teaching within the Diocese. Volunteers give thousands of hours to support those who are ill, poor and marginalised throughout Essex and East London, working with those of all faith and none.”

For links to  great Lenten resources, being provided by various charities, as well as Lenten ideas that have been shared by Parishes within the Diocese, visit the Caritas Diocese of Brentwood website by clicking the link below;



“Lent is a time of going very deeply into ourselves… What is it that stands between us and God? Between us and our brothers and sisters? Between us and life, the life of the Spirit? Whatever it is, let us relentlessly tear it out, without a moment’s hesitation.”
