Lent is a season for deep reflection and taking on intentional practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through them God works in us to remove those things that are separating us from God and open us up to grow. They prepare us to be open to God’s reconciling love and action in the world and in us through Jesus Christ. We become ready to enter again into the joy of Easter.
Below are a number of resources to enrich your Lenten season–a time of growth and promise held in a spirit of penitence and humility.
