"The Lent Calendar is popular because it was created by youth, for the youth. The multimedia features are short and engaging and it's a free resource for parish groups, high schools and families.” 

The application is characterized by "doors,” which open each day, offering the Gospel reading and a reflection to help prepare for Easter. The first door opens on Ash Wednesday and the last door will open on Divine Mercy Sunday.
