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, February 14, and continues through Holy Saturday, March 30, with Easter Sunday on March 31. We have provided a resource page with links to material, prayers and reflections to guide you through this Lenten season.

Stations of the Cross: Ecological Way of the Cross

During the Stations of the Cross, we retrace Christ's steps by enacting the biblical record of his Passion, with each station commemorating a stage in Christ's journey to crucifixion. The Eco-logical Way of the Cross puts the suffering of Christ's Passion in our time by relating it to the suf-fering of the earth and the poor.

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.
