Lent 2022: Lent starts on Ash Wednesday March 2nd and lasts for 40 days. Ash Wednesday Masses will be at 9am (live-streamed), 4:30pm and 7pm. Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We invite you to examine your life and invite Christ into it in a new way this Lenten season. There are some great Lenten resources on FORMED including Lent with Brother Francis for the children in your life! You can also check out The Bible App and sign up for one of the many Lenten Catholic bible studies.
