SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR LENT 2011
Would you like to join us in a 5 week ‘retreat’ with a difference?
You don’t have to travel anywhere and it won’t cost you anything except your time. You follow your daily routine but do things in a more thoughtful and reflective way. This ‘retreat’ has at its heart an invitation to reconciliation and forgiveness as we prepare for Easter.
Each Sunday of Lent you will be given a leaflet with a short passage from Scripture to reflect and act upon during the week.
This leaflet will also offer starting ideas and practical suggestions for the week.
Collect the leaflet at St. Mary's Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street or download from the website – www.litmus.dublindiocese.ie

For Lent
Could you do something rather that give up something?
Ash Wednesday we heard about “Prayer” “Fasting” & “Almsgiving”. What can you do to make the 40 days of Lent a growing in preparation for Easter?
