Lent

Celebrating the Paschal Mystery

The Paschal Cycle comprises three distinct periods: 

  1. Lent, which is the time of preparation
  2. Holy week with the Sacred Triduum
  3. Easter Tide which is a time of great celebration ending with Pentecost

During Lent we focus on:

  1. the celebration of the mystery of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ
  2. and our incorporation in this mystery by virtue of our baptism.

For a complete list of Lenten offerings including liturgies, learning and outreach opportunities, visit our Events Calendar and check the box for "Lent" in the filter.
