In this paper, we give some characterizations of Frenet curves in 3-dimensional contact Lorentzian Manifolds. We define Frenet equations and the Frenet elements of these curves. We also obtain the curvatures of non-geodesic Frenet curves on 3-dimensional contact Lorentzian Manifolds. Finally we give some corollaries and examples for these curves.
