The Lenten season has a double character. It prepares both catechumens and the baptized faithful to celebrate the Paschal Mystery. The catechumens are prepared for their reception of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. On the other hand, the baptized faithful are prepared through penance and prayer for the Easter celebration.
The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday (February 26, 2020) and ends on Holy Thursday (April 9, 2020). In addition to our regularly scheduled Masses and Lenten liturgies, our mission church offers the Sacrament of Reconciliation, a Lenten Retreat and Stations of the Cross on the Fridays of Lent. Our library and gift shop have books and other items available for private devotions.
Make this season of Lent a time for spiritual renewal in our Lord Jesus Christ!
