The Season Of Lent

The Season of Lent

Lent is the liturgical season that prepares us for Christ’s death and Resurrection. In this season of penitential preparation, we turn our hearts and minds to God through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Lent lasts 40 days, from Ash Wednesday to Holy Thursday, excluding Sundays. Sundays are an important part of Lent, but we do not include them in the “40 days” because every Sunday, we remember and celebrate the Resurrection of Christ in the Mass.

Palm Sunday, the last Sunday during Lent, occurs on March 24. It signifies Jesus’s triumphant return to Jerusalem after spending 40 days and nights in the desert. Good Friday occurs between Palm Sunday and Easter as part of the Easter Triduum. It will occur on March 29, one day after Holy Thursday.

Lent ends with the start of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday. This year, Lent ends on March 28. Easter falls on Sunday, March 31. Easter is a moveable feast as opposed to a fixed date each year. Easter is celebrated on the Sunday following the first full moon of spring (March 21 or later) and dates back to the Council of Nicea in 325.
