Lent begins on March 6th in 2019 and runs until the start of Holy Week on April 14th. It is a great time for prayer, renewal and finding the path again. We can often lose track as the business of the year goes on, and Lent can give us a sense of a retreat for the 40 days to connect again with the Word of God, the Eucharist and prayer.
