Xt3 Lent Calendar 2018 - Media Release

Xt3 Lent Calendar 2018

The Xt3 Lent Calendar 2018 App is available now for download on Apple and Android devices and it can also be viewed online at The first feature of the calendar will be unlocked on Ash Wednesday, 14 February 2018.

The Xt3 Lent Calendar provides daily content, including videos, meditations and podcasts, to assist you to prayerfully journey through Lent.

The theme of the Xt3 Lent Calendar 2018 is from Saint Paul's letter to the Hebrews.

"Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, who leads us in our faith and brings it to perfection…"

The same scripture verse accompanies the Year of Youth official image, Christ our Joy, painted by Alice Springs artist, Amunda Gorey.

In keeping with the theme, each day during Lent, a new image will be revealed of a Saint, youth, religious or priest who have fixed their eyes on Jesus.

Special features will include Xt3 Vox Pop interviews about Lent, video resources on Caritas Australia's work around the world, a music video titled 'Jesus is Life' featuring singer Marta ?awska from Poland and an Easter message from Sydney's Archbishop, Most Rev. Anthony Fisher OP.

The Lent calendar is a Catholic resource suited for youth groups, parishes, high schools or for your own individual journey towards Easter. Each day you will be provided with a new feature, including the Gospel readings, a scripture quote, and a small act of penance that can be added to your Lenten promises. The Xt3 Lent Calendar aims to make Lent a fruitful time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. In 2017, over 20,000 people accessed the calendar.

If you’re a teacher or youth minister and would like to preview the Xt3 Lent calendar, e-mail to receive a testing link.

The App is FREE and available on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
