Sent4Lent

What is Sent4Lent?

Sent4Lent is a national campaign to encourage and equip Catholics to evangelize during the Lenten season. To participate in Sent4Lent, our teams schedule at least four evangelization outings during Lent (between February 26 and April 12). Lent is a great time to encourage those around us to return to faith. The season asks Catholics to examine their own lives and sanctify themselves through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In the same spirit, we want to evangelize and invite those in our community to participate by returning to faith or beginning their relationship with God. There is normally a lot happening in Catholic parishes during this time: fish frys, stations of the cross, book studies, penance services, service opportunities, and retreats. These are all great opportunities to invite those in the community near us to return to the faith and participate in the Lenten season.

Who can participate in Sent4Lent?

Anyone can participate, including individuals, parishes, and SPSE Teams. If you have a zeal for souls and want to invite people to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church, Sent4Lent may be for you! You do not need to be part of an official SPSE team; you can get started with your parish, a group of friends, or just one other person. Complete the form below and a representative from SPSE will follow up with you and share how you can get involved.

Is there a theme for Sent4Lent outings?

There is no mandatory theme, but we recommend focusing on spreading the word about the Sacrament of Confession with a special intention of getting Catholics back to that Sacrament. We feel this is appropriate since Lent is a season of penance. Some of our teams have reported great success by handing out our Confession pamphlet and using our Confession signs. These materials can be purchased at our online store.

    Do I have to go out four times?

    Four outings is the minimum amount to count as part of the Sent4Lent challenge. Teams that post four evangelization outings during Lent using the calendar on their team website will get special recognition on our national website. The goal of this campaign is to encourage teams to complete more outings during this particular liturgical season. You can share your Sent4Lent Stories from the Street by sending an email to stories@stpaulse.com or by posting them on social media using the hashtag #sent4lent
