Some of you may remember a few years ago that the parish participated in a seasonal bracket of the saints. Like March Madness, Lent Madness encourages you to set up your bracket in advance - except, as we make our way through you get to pit the saints one against another and try to predict who will come out on top.
Lent Madness is a fun way to engage the season and to learn more about the saints who went before us. If you haven't played before, maybe this is your year? It all begins this week.
Read about Lent Madness and its creators here. You can also sign up for daily emails telling you about the matchup of the day and inviting you to vote.
If you want to go a little more high tech, you can actually play online, entering your bracket in and keeping track through this website.
If you decide to go ahead and play, let me know - and maybe we'll have a check-in in a few weeks to see how your brackets are going and what we've learned about the saints.
