Allston.During Lent, we prepare for the coming Easter season by taking time to reflect. Lent is an invitation to be increasingly mindful of the commandments to love God and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Join us in person or online as we journey through this season which mirrors the forty days Jesus spent fasting and praying in the wilderness.
