Lent 2019

Lent is the annual period of Christian observance that precedes Easter. The dates of Lent are defined by the date of Easter, which is a moveable feast, meaning that it falls on a different date each year. Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and its observance (although not its liturgical period, as Sundays are not fast days and are therefore not counted) lasts for 40 days, mirroring the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness before starting his ministry. It can also be seen to mirror the 40 hours that Jesus spent in the tomb prior to his resurrection.

Lent is a penitential period, involving the dual disciplines of abstinence and fasting. During Lent many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain foods, habits or luxuries - for example meat, cakes and sweets, alcohol, smoking - for its duration (the money saved is often then donated to charity). This is done both as a form of penitence and as a spiritual tool to tame the body and 'sharpen the spirit' for prayer, reflection and contemplation in preparation for the celebration of Easter.

Lent 2019 begins 4th March 2019 Ash Wednesday.

Please ensure you order your ashes and oils early to ensure that they arrive on time.

Palm Sunday 2019 falls on 14th April. Again, please ensure that you have your palm crosses and leaves in plenty of time. All orders of palms will be completed week commencing 8th March 2019.

The start of Holy week also begins on Palm Sunday so please be thinking about your paschal candles, transfers, pins and such.

All Easter items will be completed week commencing 8th March at the very latest to ensure delivery prior to Maundy Thursday.
