Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

THURSDAY 18th MARCH - LENTEN EVENING OF RECOLLECTION

As has become customary in recent years, there will be a Mid-Lenten Evening of Recollection in the Conventual Church on Thursday 18th March 2010.

The Evening will be led by the Reverend Father Dominic Robinson SJ, from Farm Street.

It will begin with a sung Mass (New Rite) at 6.30pm, followed by a Holy Hour, which will include a short spiritual conference, concluding with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at around 8.15pm.

UPDATE: Please note, as this is the eve of the Feast of St Joseph, and no Mass is celebrated in the Church on the Friday, the Mass this evening will be an anticipated Mass of St Joseph.

There will be opportunity for confession during the evening.

All are very welcome to attend, and it is much recommended to make use of this opportunity to reinvigorate our Lenten discipline, as Lent is now half-way through!

Remember O man that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
