Make Poverty a Priority- Lenten Resources 2024

This is an image of the Make Poverty a Priority logo

These special Stations of the Cross and accompanying resources from the SVP help young people to pray and pause for a moment to think about the journey that Jesus took to the cross on Good Friday when he gave his life for us. This Lent, the SVP invites everyone to a year of encounter, a chance to meet others and make a difference. As they go on this journey with Jesus, they are challenged to see, think and do, and we would like to provide agency for our young people to identify those in power in their community to whom they can raise their voices and make poverty a priority.
