The Season of Lent
Lent begins this week. The days of Lent prepare us to celebrate Easter and welcome new members into the church. It is a time to strengthen our union with Jesus and to join with him on his journey to Jerusalem where he was crucified. Throughout Lent the church constantly reminds us that by dying Jesus brought us new life and taught us how to live as people of God.
During Lent we are invited to undertake this journey through prayer , fasting and almsgiving. We pray for ourselves and others. We give something up. We share our time and ourselves more generously with other people. These traditional Lenten works remind us that denial and struggle-take up our cross each day - are essential to living as disciples of Jesus. They help us prepare for Easter, the greatest celebration of the liturgical year.
All religion classes will attend Stations of the Cross once a week during Lent. The Stations (or "Way") of the Cross are a special devotional prayer to help the children to recall the tremendous love of Jesus Christ as He suffered and died for our salvation.
