Lent at Totino-Grace

Lent is one of the major liturgical seasons of the Catholic Church that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday. During this season, our global and local faith communities are invited in a particular way to embrace God's mercy in our lives and share that mercy with the world around us. We are reminded through our Lasallian charism to be models of the gospel in preparation for Easter.

Totino-Grace offers a number of opportunities for TG families and community members to partner with us during the Lenten Season. We invite you to explore the resources and opportunities shared below and participate in our community events and initiatives.

Join us as we are guided by God's call to pray, fast, give, act, and connect.
