Lenten Retreat “Be Drawn to Christ”
A weekly Wednesday invitation to engage your faith journey
From 17th February – 24th March
From earliest times Christianity has celebrated its sensitivity towards the redemptive work of Christ in its liturgy. The season of Lent is that liturgical season calling powerfully to each Christian to renew the gift of baptism into Christ’s death so as to live anew by the power of his resurrection. Christians journey 40 days and nights imitating Jesus’ desert experience. It is a season when the Christian community responds to the call to trust God more intentionally in a spirit of togetherness.
“Be Drawn to Christ” is a weekly Wednesday invitation to engage your faith journey. Whether you may have shrugged off, or never much committed yourself to, a regular time of praying meditatively – why not let this time be different? Let this mini-series accompany that inner emptiness, call it dis-ease within, that desires God.
