Tuesday 28th February: Lenten Quiet Day “Beginning the Journey into Light” Led by Chris Smith.
Lent can be more than a time of fasting; it can be a season of feasting. Shrove Tuesday marks the end of one season and looks towards the beginning of the Lenten Journey. This day will explore and reflect upon how we might use Lent to fast from certain things and to feast on others. Chris Smith is a Catholic laywoman involved in the ministries of faith accompaniment and counselling. 10:30-4pm
