Injustice is rampant around us. It is also present within us. To better confront oppression in the world, we must own that reality and look to Christ our liberator. Lent is the opportune time for this as we contemplate his suffering together.

What is Lent?

Throughout Christian tradition, Lent has been observed for the 40 days leading up to Easter. During Lent, Christians remember the events leading up to and including the death of Jesus Christ. This annual period of prayer and fasting begins on Ash Wednesday and culminates in the great celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday.
