Ash Wednesday (Lent 2018)

Lent season begins on February 14 and ends on March 29. It is a time of preparation for Easter which lasts forty days excluding Sundays. Traditionally, activities such as repentance and self-denial take place during this time. Setting apart the season of Lent for this purpose can help individuals and the church grow in faith draw closer to Jesus Christ; especially on his life, death, and resurrection.
