Season of Lent
February 17 Ash Wednesday - April 3 Holy Saturday

Lent, in the Christian church, a period of penitential preparation for Easter. In Western churches it begins on Ash Wednesday, six and a half weeks before Easter, and provides for a 40-day fast (Sundays are excluded), in imitation of Jesus Christ's fasting in the wilderness before he began his public ministry.
April 2 | Good Friday
The trial, crucifixion, death, and burial of Jesus.
The Friday before Easter is called "Good" Friday commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus the Nazarene. Marked with prayers, fasts and penance, Good Friday is a day of contrition, repentance and reflection. It is not a day of celebration but a day of mourning, both for the death of Jesus, and for the sins of a world that his death represents.
