Lent 2021

Observing a Holy Lent

Lent is one of the five liturgical seasons in the liturgical year. During this time, the people of God are called to commemorate and reflect on the Lord’s Passion through spiritual preparation, conversion and penance.

This holy season is an invitation to renew our baptismal call. To live as sons and daughters of God and disciples of Christ, our Savior.

The booklet on the right includes this year’s plans for observing a Holy Lent at St. Martha’s. Some of the highlights are listed below.
