Keeping Lent Faithfully

We are entering the most important time in the Church calendar, the lead up to Easter. During Lent, we follow a more intentional and deepening journey of faith. We look at our lives and ask ourselves if we are living up to the faith that we profess, as well as we are able. We want to observe Lent in the best way we can, as we look towards the solemnity of Good Friday and the great celebration of Easter Day.

Daily Lent Reflections
