What is Lent?
Lent is the period of six weeks 40 days (not including Sundays) leading up to Easter. At OLCC we prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
Everybody is encouraged to abstain from eating all day and to break their fast with ONE meal each day i.e pick a meal that you will be having daily and stay with the cycle. We suggest that this not be the evening meal.
We also encourage people:
Communion is to be served daily with your family while at home and at each of the meetings on site.
