The Season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday, March 2. Lent is a time of preparing our hearts and minds for the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday.
We reflect on the life of the Savior during the 40 days of Lent. Lent ends on Holy Thursday, April 14, and Easter Sunday is on April 17.
