We are thrilled to provide you with a weekly devotion for engaging your family in faith formation at home during Lent. As we journey through this season of Lent together, you are invited to focus intentionally on the spiritual discipline of evaluating what the heart treasures. Some are physical treasures we can touch, hold, store, and give. Some treasures are invisible, yet still, greatly matter and guide our lives. By exploring Gospel passages about treasures and matters of the heart, you and your family will reflect on what kind of treasure matters to you, why you store treasures, and the power these treasures have in your lives. Each weekly video will have a scripture, reflection, discussion questions, activity, coloring page, and prayer.
