Lent in 2018 is celebrated/observed from Wednesday, February 14, ending on Thursday, March 29.

Lent is the 40-day season of preparation for Easter that ends on Holy Thursday, three days before Easter Sunday. During Lent, Catholics recall their baptism and do penance – fasting, prayer and almsgiving, as they commemorate the death and resurrection of Christ.
