Lent is a 40-day season, starting on Wednesday, February 26, where the Church prepares for the resurrection of Jesus, our Savior! Lent simply means Springtime. The time where we celebrate flowers coming back to life, birds excitedly chirping in the air, and the wondrous truth that Jesus fulfilled his promise as our Messiah and King of the World.
Many Christian traditions who recognize this lenten season encourage their people to give something up. While we at Alamo Hills recognize that practice as well — we are going to do something a bit different.
Together, with Christians all over the world, we are going to celebrate 40 days of generosity.
