Lent is a time of prayer and renewal and an opportunity to refocus relationships with God that lead us to the Easter Sunday celebration of our risen Christ. This year, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 2, and continues through Holy Saturday, April 16, with Easter Sunday on April 17.

We have provided a resource page with links to material, prayers and reflections to guide you through this Lenten season. We also have provided links to Lenten print and video reflections from the Catholic Health Association as well as our Way of the Cross prayers.

Below are some Prayers and Reflections for you to download this Lenten season:
 

A reading from the book of the prophet Joel: "Even now," says the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing".

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; According to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.


Download Prayer Two
 

Dear Lord Jesus, by Your Passion and Resurrection You brought life to the world. But the glory of the Resurrection came only after the sufferings of the Passion.

Dear Lord, in this Lenten season we come to you in prayer. You know the deepest prayers of our hearts before we frame them in words.

Where can the weak find a place of firm security and peace, except in the wounds of the Savior? Indeed, the more secure is my place there the more he can do to help me.

Lord Jesus Christ, we give you praise and thanks for your Passover from death to life. As we carry about in our human existence your death on the cross, so may your life also be manifested in our whole being. For we, who are constantly being given up to death your sake, believe that your life will be always displayed in our mortal flesh both now and for ever.
