What is “Lent”?

Lent is a season of the Church Year that lasts six weeks.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends the day before Easter Sunday.  During these six weeks we look forward to Good Friday, the day our Lord died on the cross to pay for our sins, and to Easter Sunday, the day He rose from the dead to prove it!

How can I remember to think about Jesus during Lent?

You can give up something you enjoy during Lent.  You might see your parents give up their morning coffee.  Maybe your brother or sister has decided not to eat candy during Lent.  Every time you think about doing what you gave up for Lent, it will remind you of what Jesus gave up for you–His life! Blessings to you as you experience the wonderful journey of Lent!
