Lent is the time to pray, fast and to do penance.
- Prayer; Mass attendance; family prayer; a visit to a Church or Chapel; reading the Bible; making the Stations of the Cross; praying the Rosary.
- Fasting; not eating meat, not eating sweets or deserts; giving up entertainment to spend time with the family; limiting food and drink so as to give to the poor of one's own country or elsewhere. Project Compassion is a major means of expressing our self-denial in Australia.
- Helping Others; special attention to someone who is poor, sick, elderly, lonely or over-burdened; or in other ways.
