Lent

Each year for Lent our parish chooses a focus for the season, and this year we will be reflectin on the Lenten theme,

"Practice Does Not Make Perfect"

Throughout the season of Lent we will have special opportunities to join together in prayer, fasting, and almsgiving... the three pilars of the season of Lent. Please explore the ways that you can deepen your experience of Lent this year as we all prepare ourselves for Holy Week and the celebration of Easter.
