In the early church, after a considerable time of discernment and formation, catechumens were baptized at the Easter Vigil. Their final preparation was a “forty day retreat”, that eventually the church decided was appropriate for all believers who would be renewing their own baptismal promises at the Vigil. Thus, in broad strokes, Lent as we know it was born – and Ash Wednesday is the first of the forty days.

Traditionally, three practices are central to the Lenten observance: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. The conferences of this Day of Recollection will not only offer some thoughts on each of the three but, perhaps more importantly, examine how “one needs the other.” The goal is to get Lent off to a fresh start, all looking toward the Holy Week Triduum and its culmination in the Easter Vigil. Do join us.
