Lent 2021

Resources for the Season of Lent

With the changing COVID-19 landscape, the temptation may be not to plan too far ahead. But we know that we will eventually emerge from lockdown and we need to start looking at the rebuilding of our Parish Communities and beyond. The Vicariate for Faith & Mission is busy putting together resources for Lent with the help of volunteers. These will include Daily Reflections booklets written by gifted writers from across the diocese, and Daily Reflective videos expertly produced by YMT.
