Lent and Lenten Saints

The forty days of Lent begin in February or March and continue into March or April. The timing of the season is based on the date of Easter, which is in turn based on the timing of the first full moon of spring. Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring.

Because the dates of the season vary, the feasts of saints that fall within it also vary. However, some are always included in Lent. Activities for celebrating them are included here.
