    The church is actually advocating that adults Do something for lent, like volunteering for charity, visiting the sick,helping out someone etc. I think I am going to do that instead of giving up anything.

    You beat me to it.

    I usually do something for Lent as well, rather than give up something.

    I made the call today and told them I wanted to volunteer for the food pantry program that collects the food from parishoners that is given to the food bank. In addition to volunteering I will also donate food to the cause.
