EWTN Catholic Q&A
Lent
Question from Debbie on 03-26-2014:

How is Lent calculated? I have heard two different ways. Are we supposed to count Sundays or not?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 03-26-2014:

Debbie--

Yes, the Sundays of Lent are part of Lent. That's why you'll hear them referred to at Mass as "the First Sunday of Lent," "the Second Sunday of Lent," etc.
