Lent calls us to make daily choices that will help us grow in our relationship with ourselves, God and others. When Easter finally arrives, we can look back at all our preparations and efforts and know we can celebrate the resurrection with joy and faith (Br Micheal Moore OMI)
Experience a Deeper Lent
Lent is a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday. It's a period of preparation to celebrate the Lord's Resurrection at Easter. During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting. We are called not only to abstain from luxuries during Lent, but to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ's will more faithfully.
Experience a deeper Lent this year by praying for transformation and spiritual renewal, preparing through penance and reflection, and being the best version of yourself. Visit the Archdiocese of Vancouver website for more details.
