The Meaning of Lent

Just as wee need time to prepare for any great event in life, we need time to make ourselves ready to participate kin the blessed and wondrous event commemorated by easter. Lent gives us the opportunity to: Renew, our commitment to God; Reflect on our lives and let them be directed by God; respond to Jesus' call for love and mercy toward all of God's children Lent is a special time in the year when we guard against worldly distrations and make room for the Holy Spirit to fill us. During Lent we go into our own inner wilderness-caused by sins, spiritual laziness and empty vanity. There we confront the devil. Through praye, fasting, Bible reading, and self-examination we gain the strength to work at being more loving, humble, and gentle. Spiritual renewal is possible only if you're willing to repent for your sins and change your life for God.


Each Sunday at 3pm during the Great Lent, Vespers Services will be celebrated at a different Eastern Rite Catholic Churches in the area. This will give you an oipportunity to receive the Holy Sacrament of Confession. It is a great way to get to know other parish communities and strengthen. Each parish will host a social hour after the Vespers. The services will be celebrated on the following dates:

Feb 26 - Blessed Virgin Mary Byzantine                         Catholic Church, Coatesville

Mar 5 - St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian                 Catholic Church, Pottstown

Mar 12 - St. John the Baptist Byzantine

            Catholic Church, Pottstown

Mar 19 - Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian

            Catholic Church, Phoenixville

Mar 26 - St. Michael Byzantine

             Catholic Church, Mont Clare

Stations of the Cross

Fridays at 7pm


During the Lenten season, we should abstain from eating meat on Wednesdays and Fridays; and from meat and dairy products on the first day of Lent (there are a few exceptions). All Catholic Christians are required to receive the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Eucharist during Paschal period (from the first day of Great Lent until the Feast of Ascension). All the faithful are urged to attend the Lenten services. Such good deeds as almsgiving, visitation of the sick, Bible reading and prying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life are most earnestly recommended to all Faithful. 


Let us pray for the people in Turkey and Syria who have suffered the devatation of two earthquakes. May our Lord comfort them during these hard days and may he accept those of the repose to His kingdom.
