LECTIO DIVINA FOR ADVENT

Lectio Divina is a dynamic way of reading and praying with the Holy Scriptures which has been around since AD 300.  It invites you to savour and mull over God’s words quietly, slowly and intently until you begin to respond to what God is saying.  It helps you build that vital bridge between your encounters with God and everyday life with its joys and challenges.

Lectio Divina for Advent begins in our Parish Centre Thursday 21 November 8pm.  Jesus Christ, born of the Virgin Mary, is truly the Word of God!
