Family Lenten Resources

Benjamin's Box

A Lenten Journey for Families

Each video will be between 15-30 minutes and contain a short reading from the story Benjamin’s Box, a Scripture reading, a craft, a challenge, and a prayer. By the end of the series, children with their families will have heard the Easter story and collected items symbolizing key moments of Jesus’ experience during his last days:

  • His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on a donkey  

  • The last supper

  • Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane

  • Jesus’ torture and crucifixion

  • The Resurrection on Easter morning.

Be sure to join the video presenters, Tanya from

Our Lady of Immaculate Conception in Tisdale

and Jennifer from St. Henry Parish in Leask, each week as they take us on a journey with Benjamin.
