We will observe the beginning of Lent this Wednesday, March 3rd. Lent is a period of 40 days (with the exception of Sundays) leading up to Easter. It is a time for Christians to remember the events leading up to and including the death of Jesus Christ, whose life and teachings are the foundation of Christianity. The 40 day period is called Lent after an Old English word meaning “lengthen.”
