Lent and Easter 2021


Lent is a time of preparation, it is normally a time for giving up something we enjoy for the 6 weeks. Just as Christ fasted in the desert for forty days, and was tempted, our abstinence for  the same length of time is a symbolic recognition of all Christ went through.  It also helps us to prepare for the biggest feast day in the Church's calendar, Easter Day,

 Over the past few years it has become common practice to take something else on instead of giving something up,  so this year we encourage you not to take on or give up anything but to just find a bit more time to be with God.

Lent is a time for Study, prayer and self examination
