Lent & Easter

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021. 

It is a time of spiritual preparation leading into our Easter celebration on April 4, 2021. 

During Lent, we remember the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the need we all have to renew our faith.

Find ways to help you observe a holy Lent, and joyous Easter.

About 30 people gathered as a community to share in the Ash Wednesday liturgy and to raise awareness of those suffering from homelessness and poverty.
