Welcome to the Online Lenten Journey

Each year, the Church proposes the season of Lent as a time of repentance and renewal so that we can be drawn more closely to Christ in his Paschal Mystery. Our Holy Father St. Benedict tells us in his Rule that:

Together we hope to achieve a deeper sense of prayer, be moved towards penance, and discover the peace that only comes from Christ.
