When is Lent in 2026?

Lent in 2026 will start on Wednesday, the 18th of February (18/2/2026) and will continue for 46 days until Saturday, the 4th 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.
