How will you prepare during Lent?
Lent is the season of preparation before Easter. Lent is a time of reconciliation...
A time when we make space in our lives to think about our relationship with our heavenly Father
and the ways in which we are responding or failing to respond to his love and care for us.
Lent is a time to consider the giving up of what we are for what we may become.
