Lenten Scripture Sharing Groups 2018

Invitation To Join a
  Lenten Scripture Sharing  Group
/ Attend a Lenten Preparation Evening

 

Introduction
Have you ever been part of a small group  that  met or meets weekly during Lent for a half hour to pray, reflect and chat together? 

Would you consider joining such a group as part of your Lenten exercises?

There are a number of such groups around the Elphin diocese.  Please contact Justin Harkin (087 6171526 / justin@elphindiocese.ie) if you would like to receive contact details for such a group in your area.

Alternatively have you ever considered attending a meeting that would support you reflect on a forthcoming liturgical season, e.g. Advent, Christmas, Lent or Easter, so that you might enter it more fully?
