Lent is a movable feast, occurring between February and April. Lent lasts a period of forty days, echoing the period of time Jesus spent in the desert preparing for his public ministry. During Lent, Christians devote more time to prayer, charity, and sacrifice as they prepare for the greatest feast in the Church year, Easter – when Jesus rose from the dead.
Our Lent liturgies, activities, and popular classroom calendar highlight each Sunday’s Gospel reading and invite children to reflect on Jesus’ words and actions.
