Lent Season Begins

Lent season takes place in 2017 from Wednesday, March 1 to April 15. It is a time of of preparation for Easter which lasts forty days excluding Sundays. While activities traditionally related to Lent often involve repentance and self-denial that could take place any time of the year, setting apart the season of Lent for this can help individuals and the church grow their faith in Jesus Christ by focusing more intensely on the life, death and resurrection of the Lord and His impact for each individual and the church.
