Bringing people closer to Jesus Christ
Welcome to our parish website.
Most of us like a routine, a rhythm of some sort, to ground our days.
Our relationship with God will grow better if we have a routine. So, this Lent, can you join us by setting aside ten minutes or so to make a space to be; to be with God? If you think you can do this every day, that’s great but if just once a week is easier, that’s good too. Making a routine and keeping it going is the important thing here.
Each week in Lent, , ‘Lent Space ‘will suggest a theme based on the Gospel reading for each Sunday; we will invite you to reflect on the reading and maybe a short activity.
If you enjoy what’s being offered, please let us know by emailing the parish office.
Find Lent Space here.
God bless you and your family.
