Lent 2023

Begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 22
Date: February 22, 2023 - April 6, 2023
Time: 12:00am - 6:30pm

Lent is our annual opportunity to re-focus on the Lord and His call to be closer to Him.  It's a time to ask ourselves, "Am I close to the Lord as I should be?"  It's a call to repent of our sins, remove the obstacles that keep us from living in His love and turn our lives toward Him through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  So, we encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to grow closer to Him.

Lent regulations and guidelines can be found here.
