Great Lent Giveaway
The Great Lent Giveaway was designed as a way for our youth to learn about the beauty of Great
Lent and instill in them that Great Lent is not only a time of fasting but a time to do good works and
of contemplation, while preparing for the death and Glorious Resurrection of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The current year program and programs from past years are provided
below. They may be used during Great Lent or be adapted for use during your normal Youth Group
The GLG is a partnership of the OYM and the Jr. Ukrainian Orthodox League.
