Lenten "Photo-A-Day" Challenge brings the New Evangelization to Instagram and Pinterest


Editor’s note: I would like to thank you good friend Martina Kreitzer of Catholic Sistas for bringing this great Lenten idea to our attention. I can’t wait to participate! LMH


Last year Catholic Sistas’ Lenten Photo Challenge on Instagram was such a hit {spiritually and otherwise}, they thought they’d do it again this year! If you aren’t on Instagram, no worries. If you didn’t participate last year, you are in for a spiritual treat. This was an incredible way to share with others how our Lent is going through posting daily themed photos on Instagram {and other social media outlets}. It also becomes a great way to encourage each other through the penitential season.

This year the gals at Catholic Sistas are doing a few new things that are outlined below.

  • I’m on Instagram! Great! Share your photos there and be sure to tag @CatholicSistas and use the hashtag #CSLentIPJ {Catholic Sistas Lent Instagram Photo-a-Day Journey}
  • I’m not on Instagram, but I participate in other social media platforms! No worries! Anytime you share a picture, please tag {according to their tags on each social media platform} and use the hashtag #CSLentIPJ.
  • Did we mention – be sure to use the hashtag #CSLentIPJ? 😉
  • TAG! @CatholicSistas on InstagramPinterest, and Facebook,  @Catholic_Sistas onTwitter and +CatholicSistas on Google+.
  • They want your help! Add your pictures to Catholic Sistas’ NEW Instagram.Lent board on Pinterest. They want to see what you are sharing on Instagram, leave a comment on this pin if you are on Pinterest with your account name or e-mail Martina @ Martina@CatholicSistas.com with the e-mail account attached to your Pinterest account and theyll add you to the group board.* 
  • Please share this post and the graphic on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. Click here to download.
  • Pin only your photos, please.
  • That’s it! They will look forward to seeing you “around town” and what pictures you snap throughout Lent. Don’t forget the bonus Easter theme, too!

*By joining this board, it will also appear on your account and help your followers see what’s going on during Lent with the photo challenge. It’s a great way to witness!
