Guide for Lent

The season of Lent on the church calendar sets apart the 40 days leading up to Easter as a time for journeying with Christ to the cross. Lent is often expressed through the practices of repentance, fasting, and giving. The practice of fasting expresses our hunger and longing for God. Fasting acknowledges that we are people in waiting. And fasting prepares us to truly celebrate the resurrection on Easter Sunday.
