Lent is a beautiful time to return to church and practice your faith. You will not be alone because, during Lent, every Catholic is called to renew their faith, break sinful habits, and embrace the Gospel with greater zeal. We are all sinners who seek the merciful love of our Heavenly Father and a share in Christ’s victory over sin.  To find a parish in your area and their schedule of Lenten events, click here.

Lenten practices are meant to simplify one’s life so that freed from all distractions, we may hear and respond to God’s continued call to conversion and holiness. As personal and societal struggles weigh down our hearts, the Lord calls us to open our hearts to His love and mercy.

Here are some helpful resources regarding the three pillars of Lent:

“Return to the LORD, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love.”

Joel 2:13
