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, March 6. 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 Fridays, worship God at Evensong and Benediction, attend the daily offices and mass, prepare dinners Hale Kipa, advocate for justice, or study the Bible.
