Lenten Journey to Easter

This Lent the Parish is offering two powerful small group experiences.......

Christian Meditation

Christian Meditation is a way to awaken to the reality and the nearness of God and these sessions were warmly received last Lent. Recorded introductory talks on Christian Meditation in the John Main OSB tradition, and an experience of meditation as a prayer discipline, will be offered on five Wednesdays during the Lenten season
beginning February 21st at 10.50am at the Priory.

The World Community for Christian Meditation, under the guidance of Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, currently has numerous meditation groups meeting weekly in 130 countries and in Australia there are over 400 meditation groups.

The presenter, Evelyn Reinehr, has been involved in the Christian Meditation Community in various roles since 1985 before retiring to Echuca in 2016.


Faith Circles Gatherings

During Lent this year we will be offering the Faith Circles program. Each week’s discussion will be based on the weekly Gospel reading and will include discussion and prayer. The focus will be on sharing our own personal faith story and relationship with Jesus as evidence has shown that the more we are able to share the story of our relationship with God, the stronger and deeper our relationship with Him becomes. We draw encouragement from hearing ourselves naming God’s presence in our lives and hearing how God has been present and active in the lives of others.

These gatherings will be held weekly at the Parish Centre Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm and beginning 20th February. 

There will be another Faith Circle program running in parallel on Wednesday afternoons at the St Mary's School Auditorium at 2.45pm for those who prefer afternoons.

Everyone is warmly invited to come along and
participate in one or both of these groups and so
further develop your relationship with our God this
Lent.
