Exploring Prayer in Lent 2024

Wednesday 17th January 2024

People across the diocese are invited to embark on a special journey of prayer this Lent in preparation for the 2025 Pilgrims of Hope Jubilee.

Pope Francis has designated 2024 as a Year of Prayer ahead of next year’s jubilee, inviting us to focus particularly on the Our Father.

To help us on this path of prayer, Sister Joan Kerley FMSJ, from Our Lady and Lancashire Martyrs, is teaming up with Maria Kidd and Jenny Bond to lead a series of talks exploring various themes which lead us to prayer.

Taking place on each of the Fridays of Lent between 10am and 12.30pm at Wardley Hall, the sessions include presentations, discussion, and time for quiet prayer and reflection.

Upcoming sessions include:

16 February: Praying with the Our Father

23 February: Praying in the Gospels, Part 1

1 March: Praying in Times of Struggle

8 March: Praying with Mary

15 March: Praying in the Gospels, Part 2

22 March: Journey of Prayer

Places are limited to 25 participants, so please do let us know in advance if you would like to join by contact Sister Joan by at joankfmsj@gmail.com, or by calling 0161 971 7842.

Parking is also limited, so please consider sharing a ride with another participant. If you are a Blue Badge holder, please let us know via the contact details above, so we can reserve a place.

A voluntary donation is appreciated to cover the cost of tea, coffee, and reflection papers.
