Would you like to spend a little time each week of Lent preparing for the Sunday Gospel before you hear it at Sunday Mass?

Lent is a time to consider a commitment to prayer, fasting and giving. 'Space for Lent at Lunchtime' will provide you with a wonderful opportunity to gather with others to pray, share and reflect on the Sunday Gospels during the 6 weeks of Lent leading up to Palm Sunday and Holy Week.

'Space for Lent at Lunchtime' will be delivered via Zoom and facilitated by Ursula Doherty - Lectio Divina Guide, and Tony Brennan - Pastoral Coordinator, Diocese of Derry.

Join us each Wednesday of Lent at 1:00pm-1:50pm, Lent at Lunchtime will continue each Wednesday until 29th March 2023.
