      Bishop McManus offers Lenten Letter
      My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, We have begun the 40-day Lenten season of prayer, penance and almsgiving that precedes the re-birth of Easter. You and I need Lent because we are sinners called to repentance. However, Lent’s journey is not just aimed at repentance and, through God’s grace, overcoming sin. Lent and Easter lead us to accept Jesus Christ more fully, that we may have the abundance of life he came to bring. Too often, we settle for less.
