OPPORTUNITIES FOR LENT
Lent is an important opportunity for people to reflect on their lives. The Parish is offering various possibilities for one to REPENT and renew ourselves.
- Every Wednesday evening in Lent there will be a 6 week program on the Catechism and the doctrine of the church. Here is an opportunity for people to develop a more mature understanding of their faith. This Guided Faith filled Lenten Programme will take place in the Parish Centre at 7pm.
- Every Thursday evening of Lent there will be a 6 week program which will offer people an opportunity to reflect on their inner world of emotions such as gratitude, generosity and forgiveness. This programme will be facilitated by Ber Mulcahy and will take place at 7.30 pm in the Parish Centre.
- The Parish is subsidising a book which can be purchased at a cost of €5 from the Mass Office. It’s by the author Margret Silf whose book “At Sea with God” was so well received by parishioners last year. The title of the book is Sacred in the City.
4 There are many other books on sale in the Mass Office which are aids for people to reflect on the meaning of Lent for their lives.
Try and take advantage of at least one of these opportunities. If we all did something we might better appreciate the meaning of the Ash we place on our foreheads and come to Easter better able to celebrate the Easter event.
