What Are You doing For Lent?

LENT: A TIME OF GROWTH IN DISCIPLESHIP. WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR LENT?
For the five people who will be celebrating entry into the life of the church at Easter, Lent is a special time of preparation. The six weeks of Lent are designed to give them, and all of us, time to reflect on the Lord’s call and our response. This Lent there are going to be various extra opportunities offered so that all of us can make Lent as meaningful and helpful as possible. What are you doing for Lent?

EVERYDAY: 

MASS Perhaps you might make the effort to come to Mass every morning, or at least more than just Sunday. Weekday masses 9.30am St Gregory’s & Fridays 10am St Charles’

LENT RETREAT Use the resources online at www.lentretreat.uk or use the book . Come together with others who are taking part in the retreat on Fridays at 3.30pm in the Barbarigo Room of St Gregory’s hall.

LECTIO DIVINA Use our website  or the Lectio Divina sheets issued with bulletin to help you pray everyday.

PRAYERS/DEVOTIONS Perhaps you might pray the rosary or some other devotion for the intention of the parish, or for one of the children preparing for First Confession and First Holy Communion.
Consider praying every day for someone who no longer attends Church, then invite them to join you to kiss the Cross on Good Friday or come with you to Easter Sunday’s Mass.

DONATE TO OUR FOODBANK Whatever you can give goes to those who need it at our foodbank -donations to chapel house St Gregory’s please

SCIAF Every Lent thousands of Scots save money in their SCIAF WEE BOX to help give a hand up to people living in poverty. By collecting your loose change, or giving up a treat and putting what you save into a WEE BOX you can make a lasting difference to families in some of the world’s poorest countries.

TUESDAYS: EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT 10AM-8.30PM St Gregory’s
For Lent the time of exposition will be increased until 8pm, when there will be a prayer experience and benediction until 8.30pm. Perhaps if you normally are at work and unable to make exposition during the day, perhaps the extra couple of hours will suit you to come and spend time with the Lord.

THURSDAYS: MAKING THE MOST OF THE SUNDAY READINGS: 7-8.30PM

A time of reflection and sharing faith looking at the readings of the following Sunday. Meets in the Chapel House St Gregory’s.
