Lent – 40 Days

The church liturgical season changes today from Ordinary to Lent as we come together at mass for Ash Wednesday. Together, we prepare our hearts, minds and actions for the 40 days of Lent.

There three holy practices as Catholics that we do during Lent prayerfasting, and almsgiving.

During Lent, we invite you to join our school family in prayer with the Stations of the Cross in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.

  • February 20 – 9:45AM
  • March 14 – 12:30PM

We encourage and invite the youth of our school/parish to participate in the Living Stations of the Cross that will be presented in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on March 20 at 6:30PM.

During these days of Lent, we fast with simple foods and we often give up special treats or sweets.

Our school family almsgiving Lent initiative is “40 Days 40 Bags”. Fill up a garbage bag of items to be donated. Gently used items can include: toys, books/magazines, clothes/socks, unused toiletries, household knick-knacks, etc.

During this liturgical season of Lent, do things that help you and let’s pray for each other.
