Water, Light, and Life: A Lenten Parish Mission provides a reasonably priced (and reusable) option that will highlight the talent and knowledge of your staff and other parishioners as retreat mission leaders. This multi-generational prepackaged mission is practical, adaptable, and easy for any parish staff to organize and implement. During this four-session mission, participants of all ages will reflect on the stories of the Samaritan woman at the well, the curing of the man born blind, and the raising of Lazarus from John’s Gospel. It is the perfect way for parish staff to animate parishioners during the Lenten season as the community journeys to Easter and prepares to celebrate baptism and renew baptismal promises. Taking its cue from the Period of Purification and Enlightenment of the RCIA, this mission invites participants to reflect on sin and the need for conversion and renewal—just like the three characters who accompany them through the mission. The mission kit includes all the materials the parish staff needs to successfully put on this parish mission. Included in each mission kit is a Director’s Guide, 25 participant booklets, a flash drive with all the mission materials, and access to an online landing page with PowerPoint presentations, reproducible handouts, a promotional video, and marketing materials to promote your mission. Need additional participant's booklets? Go to https://ltp.org/products/details/WLLWAP/water-light-and-life to order in packs of 25 copies.
