Living Lent: Some Resources for Worshiping from Home

With public Masses and liturgies canceled all over the United States right now — and, indeed, in many parts of the world — a lot of people are looking for ways to worship from home, maybe even using a laptop or cell phone.

With that in mind, here are a few ideas to keep your prayer life thriving during Lent.

Looking for daily Mass? Check out Catholic TV in Boston.  It features Sunday Mass, as well, from the beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame.  That airs at 10 a.m., ET.

The station also offers Morning Prayer (at 9 a.m.) and Evening Prayer (at 7:30 p.m., along with The Rosary (at 6:30 p.m.)

Check out the full schedule. 

In the Diocese of Brooklyn, its own cable station, NET, offers daily Mass with its programming. The schedule is here.

For the Divine Liturgy: the Ukrainian Catholic Church offers a livestream from the Archeparchy of Philadelphia. Visit this page for more.

A young man from the University of Scranton has compiled his own list of resources for live liturgies during the pandemic, including Eastern Catholic and Orthodox liturgies in both North America and Europe. Check it out.

EWTN, one of the pioneers of religious broadcasting, also offers daily and Sunday Mass, plus a host of other devotions. Visit their web page for full details.

Salt & Light TV in Canada offers daily Mass a few times a day. Check out their schedule. 

Want to worship with the Pope? The Vatican also offers live broadcasts of Masses. Drop by the page for Vatican Media for details.

As a service to those who may be homebound, Give Us This Day, the daily devotional published by Liturgical Press is making its devotions and Mass readings available online for free at this link.

The publisher of Catholic Digest, Bayard, has posted a lengthy list of resources, including some for parents to use during school closures. You can find them all here.

Finally: Looking for The Way of the Cross this Lent? CNEWA recently published a booklet, adapting The Way of the Cross with Pope Francis, as it was prayed on Good Friday in Rome in 2019.  A free copy of the devotion is available for order here. 

As an added bonus: we have produced an exclusive video of the entire devotion for viewing at home or in small groups. You can watch it below.

Let us pray. Let us hope. And let us together as people of faith follow the words of Jesus from the Gospel we heard earlier in Lent:

“Rise and do not be afraid.”
