Lent in Our Parish This Year
“By the solemn forty days of Lent the Church unites herself each year to the mystery of Jesus in the desert.” (Catechism #540). This holy season begins on Wednesday 14th February. To help mark this season and to help us grow closer to the Lord Jesus, we’ll celebrate the following additional Lenten liturgies this year:
Mondays in Lent: Lectio Divina (guided prayer with Scripture) in St. Brigid’s Church after 10am Mass (begins 19th Feb.)
Wednesdays in Lent: Pre-recorded guided prayer with Scripture video posted to parish YouTube channel (begins 21st Feb).
Thursdays in Lent: Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament 1pm – 2pm (begins 15th Feb)
Fridays in Lent: Stations of the Cross in St. Brigid’s Church each Friday at 7pm, with a different ‘theme’ each week – see below.
