Lent is What You Do ————- What will you do?
It is the forty days of preparation for the celebration of Christ’s saving death and resurrection at Easter. It is a time of purification when Christians renew and fulfil their baptismal promises, by dying to selfishness and living for Christ. We do this by being committed to Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving during Lent.
