Lent /  Holy Week

Lent, the season that helps prepare us for the celebration of Easter, commemorates the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, before beginning his public ministry.

As Lent draws to a close during Holy Week, we remember Jesus' death on a cross for us. Then on Easter Sunday, we celebrate the resurrection, that Jesus is alive.
