Lent is the forty-day liturgical season of fasting, special prayer and almsgiving in preparation for Easter. The name “Lent” is from the Middle English “Lencten,” meaning spring.
Over the next few days, you will find information on our various Lent liturgies during this blessed season as well as links to some good reading and reflection resources.
