Liturgical Preparation Aid for Lent, the Sacred Paschal Triduum, and the Easter Season 2023 (Year A)

FDLC is pleased to offer this collection of free resources to assist in your parish and diocesan preparations for Lent, the Sacred Paschal Triduum, and the Easter Season in both English and Spanish:

This Liturgical Preparation Aid includes:

  • The Order for Reconciling Several Penitents with Individual Confession and Absolution (Readings, Sample Penances, Music Suggestions)
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • A Liturgical Calendar for Lent, Triduum, and the Easter Season
  • The Lectionary for Mass – Year A
  • Preparation Sheets for the Rites belonging to the Period of Purification and Enlightenment
  • Preparation Sheet for Palm Sunday
  • Preparation Sheets for the Sacred Paschal Triduum

NOTE:  The Reconciliation Service in the English version uses the texts from the revised Order of Penance.  This liturgical book may be used as of Ash Wednesday, February 22.  It must be used on and after April 16 – The Second Sunday of Easter/ The Sunday of Divine Mercy. The Reconciliation Service in the Spanish version uses the current Spanish-language text, since the Spanish version of the Rito de la Penitencia has not yet been revised.
