Lenten Prayer Guide 2024

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.

This year it begins on Wednesday February 14th Through Easter Sunday March 31st Sundays are free days Water, Fruits and Vegetables NO SWEETS everyday Fish, Turkey and Chicken everyday One meal per day if you can (snacking permitted with meds)​May Our God bless you tremendously on your journey of discovery and worship this year.
