Lentorium: The Lent Emporium
Looking for that perfect Lent gift? Here you can find Lent Madness goodies. Sure, the selection is small (but high quality!), though keep your eyes peeled as we’re still on the fence about whether to offer Lent Madness dog collars, emery boards, car magnets, and foam fingers. Keep your wallets open and know that whatever money is raised will go to defray the costs of keeping Lent Madness up and running.
Want a giant Lent Madness 2018 bracket? You have only two choices: either get a magnifying glass and get really close to a standard-sized bracket that you printed yourself, or go over to the Forward Movement website and buy a poster-sized bracket right now! It’s full color, 36″ x 24″ printed on vellum. OK, that last part is laughably wrong, but it’s still nice. Buy a bracket for your parish hall bulletin board, another for your car, one for home, and then get a few dozen for your classmates or co-workers. If you’re on the altar guild, go ahead and get one for your Lenten altar frontal. Everyone’s tired of the same-old stuff from last year.
The bracket features all thirty-two saints with plenty of room to write in the winners. Did we mention it’s in full color? Get one for only ELEVEN BUCKS or buy two or more and then they’re only TEN BUCKS. By the way, they ship folded, so there’s no pesky poster tube to deal with. Get yours today!
The Saintly Scorecard, our guide to Lent Madness 2018, features the biographies of the thirty-two saints in contention for the Golden Halo. It includes tips on how congregations and individuals can use Lent Madness as a devotional tool, a collection of saintly recipes from our Resident Foodie, as well as a handy glossary and full color fold-out bracket. Each copy is hand signed* by both members of the Supreme Executive Committee.
Find exclusive, all-new Pocket Lent cards, which you can trade with others. Each cut-out card contains a portrait of a Golden Halo or Silver Halo winner or maybe a random Lent Madness competitor, along with vital stats. Just like a baseball card, but more fun and holier!
The Saintly Scorecard is a bargain at THREE BUCKS. But if you buy ten, they’re a steal at TWO BUCKS. Buy 30 or more, and we practically give them away for ONE BUCK each. They sell in singles ($3) or packets of ten. The sweet spot as at three or more packs of ten ($10 for each pack, making the scorecards $1 each). Buy 30 or 300 today!
* Some copies may feature printed signatures instead of hand-signed names. Or maybe every copy has a printed sig. Whatever. Buy it.
