Our Season of Lent (Feb. 14 through March 28, 2024)
Lent is a period of forty days, mirroring Jesus’ forty days in the desert, where we are called to draw closer to God through prayer, fasting, and acts of charity. It is a time of introspection, where we examine our hearts and seek repentance for our shortcomings, turning away from sin and toward God’s boundless mercy and grace.
During this season, we are invited to walk alongside Jesus, contemplating His sacrifice on the cross and the immense love He bestowed upon us. It is a time to deepen our relationship with Him, to meditate on His teachings, and to embrace His call to discipleship.
As we journey through Lent, may we open our hearts to the transforming power of God’s love. May we use this time of fasting and prayer to realign our priorities, to seek reconciliation with God and others, and to grow in holiness.
Let us embrace the disciplines of Lent with humility and intentionality, trusting in God’s unfailing presence and guidance. May this season be a time of spiritual renewal and transformation, leading us closer to the joy of Easter and the promise of new life in Christ.
In this Lenten journey, may we be ever mindful of the words of Jesus: “Repent and believe in the Gospel.” Let us respond with sincerity and devotion, knowing that God’s mercy is abundant and His love knows no bounds.

2nd Sunday of Lent
“’Here I am!’ he answered.”- Genesis 22:11
It is easy to say, “Here I am, Lord,” when we are kneeling in church. But how easy is it to say “Here I am, Lord,” when a neighbor needs our help, or when we are invited to join a parish ministry, or when we are asked to provide financial support? Often times we are called when it’s not convenient for us. Discipleship is not easy, most of the time it will make us uncomfortable and vulnerable.
