This month (February) we enter the time of Lent. Lent is the oldest season of the Church’s calendar year. Each week of Lent is reserved for a new dimension of Christian faith. Lent is, most importantly, a time to review and reflect upon one’s own Baptism. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. On Ash Wednesday, Christians gather to confess that Christ has not been central in their lives. So, on Ash Wednesday, February 10th, Christians gather to mark their foreheads with ashes and confess their failure to be faithful to Christ. On Ash Wednesday, Christians consider their sinful condition and begin to exercise the disciplines of prayer, fasting, and acts of charity for the next 40 days.
Over 10 groups have told us they are using the 7 Habits of Jesus material during Lent this year. We are keeping you in our prayers and welcome you to keep us informed of your progress!
