Lent programmes 2014

Canterbury Cathedral extends a warm welcome to all during the season of Lent.

Lent is a time of renewal when Christians spend time in prayer and reflection in preparation for Holy Week and Easter, the greatest of all Christian celebrations.

The Cathedral offers a programme of reflective worship and thought-provoking study groups to encourage us to grow in faith and love.

The Cathedral Lent Group

March 12, 19, 26, April 2, 10.

The Cathedral Lodge – The Kentish Barn 19:30 – 21:00

Meditations on Praying with St Luke. Diocesan Ministry Development Officer, Neville Emslie, will lead the group in a study of the prayers of Mary, Simeon and Jesus, in St Luke’s Gospel. Using art and poetry, and by taking a close look at the texts we will be invited to see how they might enrich our own praying.

Texts will be provided and refreshments served on arrival.
