For teenagers and those of Uni age

Some excellent sites for personal prayer and reflection, with fresh resources each day of Lent:

The Jesuits are offering a powerfully reflective journey; sign up and you’ll receive a link each day with new images and insights for prayer. It is especially good if you can do it as a group, meeting together once a week to chat and share insights. Perhaps a group of Year 11-13s at school, or a group of friends at Uni? All the details are at https://www.jesuit.org.uk/transform-your-life-join-lent-online-2020

From a different angle, the Jesuit Refugee Service is offering the experience of journeying with refugees through Lent, with scripture passages, reflections, and a definite action for each day of Lent, to show solidarity with refugees. All the details are at https://www.jesuit.org.uk/accompany-refugees-jrs-lent

The Columban Missionaries have taken the theme of the Environment for their Lenten reflections. Each week focuses on a particular angle, and the downloadable PDF is packed with links that take you deeper into each area. To journey through Lent with this resource will inform you, as well as simulate many areas for prayer and action. https://columbans.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Lenten-Reflections-Feb-2020-1.pdf
