Lent is the liturgical season of forty days which begins with Ash Wednesday and ends on the celebration of the Paschal Mystery (Easter Triduum).

Lent is primarily a penitential season in the Church's liturgical year, reflecting the forty days Jesus spent in the desert in fasting and prayer.

"The seasons and days of penance in the course of the liturgical year (Lent, and each Friday of the year in memory of the death of Our Lord), are intense moments of the Church's penitential practice.  These times are particularly appropriate for spiritual exercises, penitential liturgies, pilgrimages as signs of penance, voluntary self-denial such as fasting, almsgiving, and fraternal sharing (charitable and missionary works)."  CCC1438

Stations of the Cross are prayed each Friday in Lent at 7:00pm.
