We encourage all parishioners of Christchurch West to make a commitment to the following this Lent....
Lent is a sacred time in the Christian calendar, a period of reflection, prayer, and preparation for Easter. It spans 40 days, mirroring Jesus' time of fasting in the wilderness, starting with Ash Wednesday. This season invites us to deepen our relationship with God, engage in acts of penance, and renew our commitment to live out the Gospel's teachings. It's a call to self-examination and spiritual growth, encouraging us to focus on what truly matters: faith, hope, and love. Lent is an opportunity for the parish community to come together, support one another in our spiritual journeys, and emerge renewed and strengthened in our faith as we anticipate the joy of Easter.
