Once more we are preparing to welcome back the season of Lent into the life of our parishes. This year we remember that every Lent offers us a precious opportunity to deepen and increase our faith. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.

Lent is our annual retreat when we are each called to prayer, fasting and almsgiving. In Lent we have a ready-made programme of renewal – if we just pay attention to its many invitations to us.
