CONTRA HOSTES TUOS
The Year in Prayer
Into The Year
LaSalette begins the school year with the feast of Our Lady of LaSalette on September 19th, following into the Starkenburg pilgrimage and then into All Saints and Advent.
After the preparatory season of Advent comes the season of Christmastide, celebrating the birth of Jesus. This short time of joy includes the feast of the Purification and the Epiphany.
Shortly after Christmastide comes the penitential season of Lent, which prepares us for the Resurrection of Our Lord. This season still includes the feasts of the Annunciation and St. Joseph, and ends with Holy Week.
Holy week is an austere and sorrowful commemoration of ur Lord's death, ending with the Sacred Triduum and the Easter Vigil. This holiest week of the year is the final preparation for the joy of Paschal time.
