Lent 2022

We enter into the season of Lent, a special season preparing all for the celebration of Easter. The twofold themes of repentance and baptism disposes both the catechumens and the faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery. The catechumens (those preparing for the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist) through the various rites they celebrate during Lent, and the faithful by listening attentively to the Word of God, praying and repenting are prepared to renew their baptismal promises.

The season Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and comes to and end before the evening Mass of Holy Thursday, which then begins the Sacred Paschal Triduum.

The Traditional Practices during Lent are PRAYER, FASTING AND ALMSGIVING.

  • There are many opportunities to come to PRAYER communally or privately in Church or wherever is most convenient for you.
  • We can FAST from food or our various activities so that this denial may leave us more available for prayer or good works.
  • ALMSGIVING can be our monetary giving, or giving of our time, our talent or our treasure for the good of others.
