Lent

WHAT DOES ‘LENT’ MEAN?

Our word ‘Lent’ is taken from the Anglo-Saxon and means ‘Spring’ or ‘Lengthening.’ Lent is that time of year when the days lengthen, and hopefully a time when the light of faith also grows stronger for us. The season begins on Ash Wednesday and culminates in the celebration of the Lord's death and resurrection in Holy Week.
