Lenten Reflection

What is LENT?
Lent is a 40-day period leading up to Easter, beginning
with Ash Wednesday on February 14th. Lent is
a season of penance. That means it is an opportunity
to examine your life, give your struggles to
God, and invite him to help you become the best
version of yourself.
During Lent, there is a strong focus on prayer, fasting,
and almsgiving. All these spiritual exercises
help prepare us for the celebration of the passion,
death, and resurrection of Jesus.
PRAYER
Consider making a commitment to visit St Paul’s
Church Adoration Chapel or attend daily Mass.
FASTING
In addition to fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good
Friday, consider something else in your life that you
can give up for Lent. Try to replace that time with
something that will make you a better version of
yourself.
ALMS GIVING
Attend our Friday Fish Dinners which support St
Paul’s Parish.
