Easter Program 2008

Lenten Groups

The Ursuline Community is offering two Lenten Groups this year:

The groups will begin on 4th and 5th February. This will enable preparation for
the following Sunday Liturgy. The groups will be following the Brisbane Lenten Program Gathered for Giving.
An attractive, full colour discussion guide contains prayer, the Sunday gospel, a gospel reflection and follow up
activities. Special music has been written for the program. The cost of the booklet is $9.

If you would like to participate, could you please phone by 30th January to allow for booklets to
be organised. For the Monday Group: 9798 0455. For the Tuesday Group: 9799 5344. The Ursuline
Community looks forward to sharing this Lenten journey with you.
