As the season of Lent begins, Boys Home of Virginia has created a Lenten prayer and giving calendar to share with you and your family. 

Beginning with Wednesday, Feb. 17, each day highlights a prayer request and a suggested donation; and most days include the name of a specific student at Boys Home to pray for. Each Sunday offers a passage of scripture, along with a prayer request.

The calendar ends on Saturday, April 3, just in time for the Easter celebration. 

Due to the pandemic safety precautions, all in-person events, fundraisers, and activities are being restructured in creative ways.

Boys Home hopes that this calendar will be a thoughtful and interactive way to celebrate Lent, as well as learn more about Boys Home of Virginia’s residents and mission. Please feel free to share this calendar with your friends and family. 

For more information, or to download a digital version of the calendar, please visit www.boyshomeofva. org.

Donations may be made online or mailed to Boys Home of Virginia, 414 Boys Home Road, Covington, Va., 24426.
