Pray More For Lent                                                                              

One important way we can pray is by doing so in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. If you would like to spend an hour in quiet contemplation please come along to our Nazareth Room on Wednesday evening from 7 to 8 and set ONE hour aside to be with HIM.

 

Weekly Lenten Prayer Sheet                                                              

To help us focus on what Lent means in our lives we have prepared a Prayer Sheet containing some inspirational thoughts, challenges and prayers to guide and support us on our Lenten journey. Please take one home with you and we hope you find it helpful.
