LENT 2013

To prepare ourselves to renew our baptismal promises at Easter, we embark this Wednesday on our forty days of prayer, self-denial and helping others.
Our theme for Lent is “Jesus is the truth who will set us free.” We shall journey with Jesus during these forty days of Lent as we will recall his time in the wilderness, his transfiguration, his call to be converted, the prodigal son forgiven and the adulteress woman forgiven.
Lent is a season of renewal– deepening our appreciation of God’s word together, more time spent in prayer and giving to others from our self-denial. It should not be a sad time, but rather a time of growth as persons and as a community.
