Lent and Easter

Welcome to St Mary's Old Harlow Lent and Easter page.

What is Lent?

You can read about the meaning of Lent.

Christians often abstain (fast) from certain food and drink during Lent. As the meaning of Lent article indicated: "... it can still involve giving up foods or activities that are in some way luxuries. This discipline makes prayer seem to have a sharper focus". - https://christianity.org.uk

Sometimes, however, people choose to fast in a different way. Rather than fasting from certain food and drink, they fast (abstain) from something quite different...

Do you want to fast this Lent

What is Easter?
