Period of Lent Reminder

Lent (Latin: Quadragesima: Fortieth) is a solemn religious observance in our Christian liturgical calendar that begins on ASH WEDNESDAY (14th FEBRUARY) and ends approximately six weeks later, before EASTER SUNDAY. The purpose of Lent is our personal preparation through prayer, doing penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, and self-denial. Apart from the obvious abstinence of a favourite beverage or confectionery we are encouraged to strengthen our spiritual being during Lent by attending an additional mass during the week, and/or at least spend time in Church  praying and/or availing of the Sacrament of  Reconciliation.
