2017 Lenten Programs and Opportunities
Brothers and Sisters,
Lent is a special invitation to deepen our commitment to daily conversion so that we are living with in integrity and holiness of life. With the help of our Lord, we achieve this radical transformation through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. First is prayer, reminding us of our complete dependency on God. Secondly, fasting allows us to let go of the things that weigh us down and that we do not need, and to remind us that only God can satisfy the hunger of our hearts. Finally, our recommitment to ‘love your neighbor as yourself’ transforms our hearts, as we grow in generosity.

It is my hope and prayer that this Lent is a source of abundant blessings for all the faithful in the Diocese of Arlington and a time of recommitment to the Lord and His call to conversion.
