Preparing our hearts for Lent and Easter

Discover music collections, prayer resources, playlists and more, all created to guide and inspire and you during these holy seasons.

 

This Lent and Easter, OCP is eager and ready to help God’s people reflect on the saving passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. That passion takes on added significance in light of our past and current troubles. The world needs the healing power of Jesus, now more than ever. Together, let us put his saving Word on the lips of God’s people, empowering them to sing “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God” (Col. 3:16). OCP is here to serve you. Please let us know how we can help you and your community enter more deeply into these sacred seasons.
