Rica Peralejo offers free Lent workbook for Holy Week during quarantine
MANILA, Philippines—With Luzon under lockdown during Holy Week, Filipinos are finding ways to practice their faith in the safety of their homes.
To help address this need for spirituality, former actress Rica Peralejo has made a Lent workbook she created with friends available online for free.
The workbook, titled “Anchor of the Soul”, can be downloaded from her blog.
Peralejo said in her Instagram post Wednesday, April 8, “Our team made this before the week of Lent, and we are sharing it again for those who want something soul-filling, spirit-lifting for this week.”

So many things have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. But should we then cancel Easter, too? But why would I do that when this is an available hope given in advance especially for a time like this? . . I know we cannot really make much sense of our days, so we thought it is relevant to bring this out again. Our team made this before the week of Lent, and we are sharing it again for those who want something soul-filling, spirit-lifting for this week. You can download a copy of the workbook for free. 🌿 This workbook has reflection prompts, a playlist, and morning and night activities you can share with the people who live with you, or with your friends via zoom!!! (Hey Moms! The activities can also be done with small kids!) 💕 . . The first workbook can be downloaded by clicking #linkinprofile or simply go to everydayanewpage.com and you can see the latest blog entry called Anchor for the Soul and it holds a downloadable pdf file of the workbook. . . If you want to join a larger conversation and interact with people who are also reflecting using this workbook, simply go to @abide.ph (follow us, too?) and use the hashtag #AbideCommunity when posting your thoughts.🍃 We also put up templates you can answer, surely we made them reflective, inspiring, truthful, hopeful, and so purposeful as we have no choice but to while away the quarantine! 🥰 MY HOPE IS TO SEE YOU THERE!!!
She said that the four-day devotional has “reflection prompts, a playlist, and morning and night activities you can share with the people who live with you, or with your friends via Zoom!!!”
With the workbook starting on Maundy Thursday, Peralejo posted a video this morning of her reflections for the day on Instagram.

Day 1 of our Lent devotional and I decided to share my thoughts here on IGTV. If you don’t have a copy yet, you can get it for free at everydayanewpage.com which has the file ready for downloading! 👌🏻 Today’s entry led me all the way back to the garden with Adam and Eve. I want to know where this story of Peter brings you, too, so please share them by using the hashtag #AbideCommunity or comment at our posts at @abide.ph 🍊
TV host and radio DJ Andi Manzano commented that she was using the workbook already. “Starting it today!!! Thank you for sharing it [with] us. My family is doing it too.”
Peralejo has been married to Christian pastor Joseph Bonifacio since 2010. The actress, who rose to fame with ‘90s youth shows like “Ang TV” and “Gimik”, has stayed out of showbiz for the past years to raise a family.
