The Season of Lent

Lent is the forty-day preparatory period before Easter, beginning on Ash Wednesday. Lent begins this year on March 5 and culminates on Easter Sunday, April 20. In the Christian tradition, the season of Lent is a time of soul searching and repentance – a time for reflection while taking stock of one’s life in preparation for the Easter celebration of the risen Christ.

When you click on the image above, you'll experience a collection of Lenten Reflections from contributors throughout the Edgewood College community. Generally we have included only a portion of the biblical text due to space constraints. We hope these reflections, based on readings in the Common Christian Lectionary, serve as a guide and a point of inspiration for you during this year’s observance of Lent.
