When Christians approach lent, they are reaching for a time of resurrection and renewal, of returning to God's perfect plan for their lives. Lent is a 40-day season of preparation culminating in Easter. Lent is the time when we focus on becoming closer to God. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and culminates on Easter.

In confession, we admit our sins and ask for forgiveness. In illumination, we are shown the way to true repentance and salvation.
