As we approach Lent this year, you may be asked to explain your faith to people who do not know why you have ashes on your forehead or why you have suddenly stopped eating fast food. 

Sixty Second Lent is a new fast paced video series from the diocese of Northampton answering your questions in sixty seconds.

Fr Brendan Seery, our diocesan chancellor and parish priest of Our Lady Help of Christian’s in Luton has recorded the series starting with ‘What is Ash Wednesday All About?’.

Fr Brendan said:

“I hope this series is helpful for all people regardless of their knowledge of our Catholic faith, especially in the modern world where time is so precious”.
