The Season of Lent

Lent is the season of renewal as we prepare for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Forty days and forty nights in length, this observance mirrors our Lord's time in the wilderness, and begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14. It is a time when we fast and abstain from various pleasures, and when we devote extra energy to scripture, theology studies, worship, and outreach. Lent is also when we prepare friends for baptism, confirmation, and reception in the church.


Renewing the Heart and Soul for Christ this Lent

There are many ways to renew your faith this Lent. Walk the Way of the Cross on Wednesdays, worship God at Evensong and Benediction, participate in the Lenten Forums after High Mass, support the Catechumenate, attend the daily offices and mass, prepare dinners for the homeless on Sunday nights, or advocate and fast with the Presiding Bishop for those in need.
