Lenten Day of Prayer: Transform Our Hearts: The Challenge of the Lenten Gospels

Date: Mar 16, 2021 - 9:00am to 3:00pm


Transform Our Hearts: The Challenge of the Lenten Gospels  

The journey of Lent is a journey of conversion: A time to learn from Jesus and allow Him to transform our heart so that it becomes more and more in tune with His desires for us. This will be a day to be still and listen with our hearts as we reflect on some of the gospels of this sacred season.  It will be a time to deepen our relationship with Jesus and renew our commitment to make His Story alive in our personal life-story.
