Two suggestions to make this Lent a time of spiritual growth. As you probably know Pope Francis has written an important letter to the church called Evangelii Gaudium, The Joy of the Gospel, that provides a roadmap for this papacy. Lent offers an opportunity to reflect on this document.
Beginning a week on Wednesday, 12th March at 7.30pm and for the following five Wednesdays in the hall, there is a presentation of the letter’s major themes with a short video and discussion, organised by Elsie and led by Fr Frankie. Do make an effort to attend at least some of these sessions.
A Lenten Journey of Prayer, Walk with me, that daily provides a short quotation from Pope Francis’ letter a Scripture quotation, reflection and a prayer is available at the back, it costs £1.
This year the Deanery is introducing Lenten Station Masses. Full details on notice board. Do try and attend at least the nearest Mass at St Mary’s Langho. The first of this year’s Lent talks will be on Saturday 15th March in our Parish Hall. ‘The church at the crossroads’ with Dr Robert Pierce, a Christian GP who examines the health of the church from a personal perspective. The talk commences at 11am and concludes at 12noon. Coffee will be served from 10.30am.
