Lent around our Diocese

Thursday 27th February 2020

The season of Lent provides us with an opportunity to take a step back and reflect. To refocus on what we believe, and why. We remind ourselves about the faith and trust that we have in our God and we take a moment to regain the sense of putting our faith into action in all that we do.

Around our diocese this Lent, there are many opportunities for prayer and reflection.

You can find some of these events below by clicking the drop down menu or, if you are looking for details of a specific parish, on the websites of these parishes.
