When is Lent in 2012?

Lent in 2012 will start on Wednesday, the 22nd of February (22/2/2012) and will continue for 46 days until Saturday, the 7th of April.

In Western Christianity Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Holy Saturday. The six Sundays in Lent are not counted among the forty days of lent because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter", a celebration of Jesus' victory over sin and death.
