SEASON OF LENT – LITURGY & MUSIC
The season of Lent is almost upon us. As we shift into this season of preparation, penance and conversion, we will be singing some musical choices that will correspond with the liturgical season to facilitate hearts and minds to prayer and to prepare the Church for Easter. For more information...
The 40 days in Lent are traditionally marked by fasting both from foods and festivities, and by other acts of penance. The three traditional practices to be taken up with renewed vigor during Lent are prayer justice toward God), fasting (justice toward self), and almsgiving (justice toward neighbor). Watch for the wooden cross this Lent, which will display three different colored tags hanging on the cross arms. Each color represents the three different sacrifices or practices of Lent; pink; prayer, purple: fasting, black: almsgiving. Challenge yourself to take at least one.
