Lent

Lent is our time of preparation.

During these 40 days, we ponder what it means to “give up, take up and lift up.” Using the spiritual practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, we deepen our relationship with Christ and discern where God is working in our lives.

Take a Lenten Journey with us. Throughout the season of Lent, reflections on the Sunday readings and a variety of resources will be posted on the diocesan website. You are invited to enter into prayer, do acts of mercy and fast in union with other disciples of Jesus Christ – as a family, a household, a parish, a community, a diocese and a universal Church. Together let us recommit ourselves to doing justice, loving tenderly and walking humbly with our God.
