Something Different for Lent 2018 – A Busy Person’s Retreat is a collection of gentle reflections and activities each week, based on the Sunday Gospel, for you to do at your own pace at your own time. Guide yourself and gift yourself 5-10 minutes each day. You’ll be surprised what you may get out of it!
Hearing, Happening & Hoping – Is a reading of a biblical text in the hope of meeting God that can be done individually or as a group based on the scripture each week! Meeting God is something that happens in our lives. God is already in our lives, so what we’re really doing is discovering THE ONE who is already there. There is a little, 1 page leaflet for each week – Hearing happening hoping Lent 1, Hearing happening hoping Lent 2, Hearing happening hoping Lent 3, Hearing-Happening-Hoping Lent 4, Hearing-Happening-Hoping Lent 5, Hearing-Happening-Hoping Lent 6
There are three versions/ reflections on the Stations of the Cross
