Lent at Home

With Fr Frank O’Loughlin

“Lent leads into Holy Week and the celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is a time for allowing ourselves to come closer to him and allowing him to come closer to us.”  Fr Frank O’Loughlin

Fr Frank invites us each week to create a prayer space and explore a scripture passage with some guided questions and suggestions on how to pray during Lent.
