5th March 2023 - Second Sunday in Lent

Together Sharing Christ’s Love

Welcome to:

Redeemer, Macalister

St Mark’s, Dalby

Liturgical Colour: Violet

First Sunday in Lent: What is Lent?

Many Christians have heard of Lent, but do all know what it means? According to Merriam-Webster, Lent means "the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter as a period of penitence and fasting."

Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday, 46 days before Easter Sunday.

Lent is meant to be a time of repentance. That’s not a feeling of shame but an awareness that sin separates us from God and of what it cost Him to be reunited with us.
