A Quick Refresher on Lent

Lent is coming up, here are a few reminders for you!


Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday when we receive ashes on your forehead in the shape of the cross. These ashes are from palms from the previous year’s Palm Sunday. As of Ash Wednesday, we are officially in Lent!


What is Lent?

Lent is 46 days long (40 when you don’t count Sundays) when we re-focus and re-engage on Jesus, his suffering and death for us and his resurrection. The time of 40 days reflects on the time Jesus spent in the desert being tempted by Satan.
