Lent is the period of 40 days which prepares us for Easter, the greatest feast of the Liturgical Year. Lent is a season of reflection and preparation, by observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days The Lenten journey is marked in a special way by the three ‘traditional‘ dimensions of Lent, namely: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving (money, clothes, food etc given to the poor). Through prayer we make room for God in our life and we express our wish to enter into a deeper friendship with the Lord. Through fasting and almsgiving, we deny ourselves something in order to share it with others in a spirit of harmony and unity.
Please join the Liturgy Committee from the 3rd of March on a Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7.10 in the Chapel for early morning prayers and petitions. Through the different Mysteries of the Rosary, JOYFUL, LIGHT, SORROWFUL, and GLORIUS we will meditate on the life of Jesus.
Please diarise the 27th of March when Brescia House School will be hosting the Stations of the cross at the Bryanston Catholic church.
