Create a Space for Stillness and Reflection in Your Home This Lenten Season

Lent is about broadening our hearts and preparing the way, making room for careful attention to what matters most.’  

With this intention we invite you to create a dedicated space in your home for quiet prayer and contemplation. This area can be as simple as a comfortable chair with a small table, perhaps near a window to gaze on nature while sipping your morning coffee.

Add a candle (battery works well), a purple cloth and a symbol or two that reflects faithfulness and hope. This could be a cross, a stone, a picture – see what speaks to you. You might also choose to add a new symbol each week. A basket for your bible or other inspirational text, a Lenten Devotional, such as ‘Poetry of Lent' and a journal with pen may also be useful as you embark on your personal Lenten Journey. Commit to spending time here each day, allowing yourself time to rest, renew and reflect in the coming weeks.

Spiritual Direction

Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. Spiritual direction is a process of deep listening with a spiritual companion as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.
