Lent "Noticing God on our Journey"

Welcome to LENT 2019: Noticing God on our journey.  If your’re in the same place at the end of Lent, then… perhaps you haven’t noticed what God is doing!   Lent is not about what we achieve, but about what we allow God to accomplish in us.  Lent offers an extended opportunity to pay attention to how God is present and acting in our lives and world.  We’re invited to experience metanoia – a change of thinking, a change of heart, that moves us to be more loving, faith-filled, compassionate and generous - as Christ.  You’re invited to journey of renewal—give yourself the gift of space and time to receive God’s grace and mercy!

 

 

A respectful silence for Lent. We ask everyone to maintain a prayerful silence before the start of Mass as a Lenten practice this year. You’ll also notice a few more moments of quiet after the readings and after communion... “‘Silence is God’s first language’ (John of the Cross);  everything else is a poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and rest in God.“ Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O.

Support your lenten journey by taking advantage of  some of the many opportunities available. Pick up a black book for daily reflection or use the online suggestions for “The Biggest Lie” and see where the Spirit leads. Pray the short video stations on the Lent page on our website.  Pray the examen at the end your day: When did you notice the presence of God? When did you feel distant from God?
