On Ash Wednesday, February 18, we will begin the season of Lent. This special season of grace is a time for conversion and renewal as we seek the Lord’s mercy and forgiveness. As stated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the penance we embrace is meant to assist us in overcoming sin in our lives to discover the freedom that Jesus promised those who embraced a life of faith. This freedom is not social or political in nature, but rather, is an inner freedom from life events, human conditions or social pressures that impact human ability to live in accordance with the will of God.
Lent is a special time and opportunity to pray, read and reflect to understand oneself in relationship to God’s love. LENT AND EASTER SCHEDULE
