Lent

Lent

Lent is a forty day period of time during which Christians devote themselves to prayer, fasting, and works of mercy as a way of
preparing themselves to celebrate Christ's death and resurrection at Easter. Originally a time of preparation for those who would be
baptized on Easter, Lent gradually became a time when those who had left the practice of their faith would return to Christ and the Church.
 
Today, Lent offers Christians an opportunity to prepare themselves to recommit to their baptismal promises at Easter by returning to
the basic practices of their faith.

All liturgies include the distribution of ashes.
