for the journey

We’ve only just packed up our Christmas decorations, and already we’re looking forward to the next great season of the Church! It’s time to move on!

On February 2nd, as we celebrate the Feast of Candlemas and the presentation of the 6 week old Jesus in the Temple, our journey through the Church’s year takes an important turn. As Simeon prophecies that Mary’s heart will be broken, the reality of the Incarnation strikes home.

Ash Wednesday (February 17th) is the beginning of Lent, and the journey to the events of Christ’s saving death and resurrection.

For each of the 40 days of Lent, in addition to our usual prayer posts, we’ll be reflecting on the Eucharist with a daily meditation, along with other resources for prayer and reflection.

As a Pilgrim People, we are always on the move, as we journey from here to eternity. In the Eucharist, God has given us food for the journey.
