Lent is what is known as a “moveable feast.” In other words, the dates are not set by our calendar, but by other events which can cause the actual dates to shift. (If you want to think about how complex this can be, look up how the date for Easter is determined!) At any rate, this year Lent falls on a very unique set of dates. Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 14th, Valentines Day. And it ends with Easter on April 1st, April Fool’s Day. While I’m not really excited about the Ash Wednesday date, Easter and April Fool’s coinciding could make for a fun Easter Sermon. Here is the tentative calendar for our Lenten activities.
