Beginning Ash Wednesday and continuing through the 40 days of Lent, participants will receive daily inspirational emails with short videos from Matthew Kelly and our incredible Dynamic Catholic Team members.
Lent is a 40-day period leading up to Easter, beginning with Ash Wednesday. This year, Ash Wednesday is February 14, 2018. Lent is a known as a penitential season. That means it is an opportunity to examine your life, give your struggles to God, and invite him to help you become the-best-version-of-yourself®.
In particular, there is an increased focus on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, All these spiritual exercises help prepare us for the celebration of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
Lent in 2018 begins on Ash Wednesday (February 14, 2018).
The day before Ash Wednesday is popularly known as Mardi Gras (literally Fat Tuesday). Since Lent is a season of fasting, Fat Tuesday traditionally is a final day of feasting and merrymaking before the 40-day fast.
Easter in 20186 is April 1, 2018.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, which is March 25, 2018. Holy Thursday, which begins the three-period the Church calls the Easter Triduum, is March 29, 2018. Good Friday is March 30, 2018.
Lent is the perfect time to form new life-giving habits and abandon old self-destructive habits. But most of us just give up chocolate. Then, when Easter arrives, we realize we really haven’t grown spiritually since the beginning of Lent
Lent is not just about giving things up, like chocolate. Lent is about doing something—something bold to become a better husband or wife, father or mother, son or daughter, friend, neighbor, etc.
What if this year you did more than just give up something during Lent? Do something life-changing. Sign up for Dynamic Catholic’s Best Lent Ever.
