Preparing For Lent

 

On 3rd February, the Emmanuel Community invited Fr. Andrzej Niski to lead a Day of Recollection at St. Mary’s Beauly.  

 

Fr. Andrzej took as his theme, “Jesus, our Divine Inspiration”, Lenten Recollection and Practices.  In breakout groups we looked at our freedom to follow our faith, and the barriers that have impeded us at different stages of our life.

During the discussion we were given handouts to help us focus on Lent, what it is about, and different observances, and practices.  There is a section on four things to aim for during Lent, to guide resolutions for Virtue, Devotion, Penance and Alms giving.
