Deepen your prayer life through Lent with scripture reflections and resources and discover different ways of praying. Support CAFOD with our Lenten soup.

This Lent we invite you to walk together with Jesus and each other.

Each day our journey will explore ways of praying with scripture and picture to deepen your relationship with God, with others and with the world.

Our programme will be on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm at Our Lady and the Lancashire Martyrs beginning on 13th March (Ash Wednesday session will be skipped due to Mass).

There are 3 pillars for Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We begin each session with a simple supper of soup and bread (fast). Participants can make a donation to support CAFOD (almsgiving). The session will then begin with an opening prayer, a short presentation on a type of prayer used in Ignatian retreats (praying with Scripture, the Examen, centering prayer, ways to make a decision through a process of discernment etc). Then we will divide into groups (there will be a facilitator) to share something that appealed to us while we were praying with the materials for each day. The sessions will end with a closing prayer.

Here are some materials including scripture passages, reflection and ways to pray with scripture to help you journey with each other this Lent.
