When was Lent in 2011?

Lent in 2011 started on Wednesday, the 9th of March (9/3/2011) and continued for 46 days until Saturday, the 23rd of April.

How are Lent dates determined?

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.
