In 2017. the Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1st. The lenten season is a period of penance, purification, and preparation that leads us to the celebration of Easter on Sunday, April 16th.
The Church has long recommended penitential practices, including prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Lent isn't simply about "giving up" something--though there might be things in our lives that we can stand to get rid of! Consider intensifying your prayer life. Come to weekday Mass. Come to the BRCC's Friday prayer gatherings. Take the opportunity to go to confession.
