  New Social media campaign kicks off to unite Metro Detroiters this Lent

#liveyourbestlent provides high tech outlet where folks can share their stories, provide inspiration and post photos and video during their Lenten Journey

DETROIT - Giving up chocolate is good, but the new social media campaign #liveyourbestlent asks thousands of Christians to join together to live their best lent!

#liveyourbestlent is asking Metro Detroiters to share how they are living their best lent. Post your Lenten practices on Facebook and Twitter. Whether it’s a photo of you doing a daily bible study, video of friends and family serving at a soup kitchen or a “selfie” of you smiling as part of your effort to be friendlier, we want to learn from you!

The campaign’s goal is to have Metro Detroiters uplift and encourage one another during their Lenten journey.

#liveyourbestlent” is a powerful way to engage Metro Detroiters to share their vision for a better Detroit and a closer relationship to God,” said Michelle St. Pierre, Marketing Manager of The Michigan Catholic, the sponsor of #liveyourbestlent. “Often we wear our ashes as a sign on Ash Wednesday, and then miss additional public ways to share our faith journey during Lent. #liveyourbestlent will allow Christians to share, support and gain inspiration from others, #Liveyourbestlent extends our public display and unity long after the ashes have faded.”

With thousands of Catholics and Christians in Southeast Michigan, there will be ample opportunities to learn from each other and help provide service to the community during these 40 days of Lent. The Michigan Catholic newspaper will also feature stories about how Catholics in Metro Detroit are living their best Lent, and will provide special tips and commentary throughout the season.
