Lent 2020

Lent is an annual season of preparation for Easter. The faithful and those new to faith are encouraged to greater attention to the wok of God as they grow more deeply as disciples of Christ. Renewed efforts in prayer, penance, and giving nobly characterize this season. At St. Alphonsus Liguori there are a wealth of opportunities to observe Lent and we invite you and your family to join us.

Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting abstinence for all able to undertake it. When fasting, a person eats one full meal and two smaller ones only. All the faithful are called to abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent as well as Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Abstinence from other foods and drink, such as deserts or wine, are also encourage as personal penances.

Giving & Almsgiving

The foundational call of Christians to charity is a frequent theme of the Gospels and a special project of Lent. We are asked to focus more intently on “almsgiving” which means the provision of goods and services, works of mercy and charity, or financial support to the “poor” as they are present around us.

Giving also includes our tithe or offering, our worship offering in our place of worship as an act of worship. To learn more about giving to St. Alphonsus Liguori please click here.
