Ash Wednesday

The first Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church to prepare for them by a season of penitence and fasting. This season of Lent provided a time in which converts to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism.  It was also a time when those who, because of notorious sins, had been separated from the body of the faithful were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness, and restored to the fellowship of the Church. Thereby, the whole congregation was put in mind of the message of pardon and absolution set forth in the Gospel of our Savior, and of the need which all Christians continually have to renew their repentance and faith.

During the season of Lent. Christians around the world focus inward, looking at our own sin and brokenness, and how these things led Jesus to the cross.  We remember His 40 Days of self-denial in the desert, and intentional deny ourselves certain things, as we feel led.  We also practice alms-giving as a way of serving the needy in our community. Among other things, this 40 day period helps us appreciate Easter even more when it finally arrives.
