Lent remains an important time for Catholics

Fasting, almsgiving, and prayer continue to be cornerstones for Catholics in Door and Kewaunee Counties during the Lenten season as it approaches the halfway point. In addition to giving up meat on Fridays, many Catholics head to confession more often and try to go without something for the 40 day period. Father Daniel Schuster of Holy Trinity Parish in Casco and St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg says Lent keeps followers from going through the motions when Easter comes.

Fasting rules vary depending on age and health, but Father Schuster says the practice helps Catholics open themselves to a deeper life. Lent continues until Easter Sunday on April 21st
