Lent is 10 days away!
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6. Masses that day are at 12 Noon and 6:00 PM. Lent is the season of penance for the faithful and for the purification and enlightenment of all those preparing to receive the sacraments of initiation. It is a time to look within at our feelings and motivations, and to see how these things are manifested in our actions in the world. How will we pray during this particular Lent? How will we be different to the people we encounter? How will we direct our thoughts, prayers and actions to those in need in our world? What will we not only “give up” during these 40 days, but what and who will we “give to”?
