The Season of Lent
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6th, and concludes quietly and without ceremony in the late afternoon of Holy Thursday, April 18th, before the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper. These six weeks of Lent are dedicated to a deeper conversion to Christ.
A Time for Intercessory Prayer
A Cross of “Human Need” will be set up in the entrance to the Church on which parishioners can affix special prayer intentions they would like the parish to pray for during Lent.
A Time for Scripture Reading and Study
For easy and meaningful Lenten study: Go to the website, www.usccb.org, for daily readings to review Lenten scriptures.
A Time for Conversion
