What is Lent?

Lent is a season of the where Christians focus on simple living, prayer, and fasting in order to grow closer to God. Lent is the season of preparation before Easter.

When is Lent?

It's the forty days before Easter. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, and excludes Sundays because every Sunday is like a little Easter. The purpose of Lent is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ - his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial and resurrection.
