Benedictine Nuns of Jamberoo Abbey

It’s almost time for Lent. We would like to invite your parishioners to our online retreat titled High Horses, Scapegoats and Donkeys: A Lenten Odyssey. For information including cost go to:

https://www.jamberooabbey.org.au/

“This retreat takes us into the realm of tears, the tears of compunction that St Benedict talks about in his chapter on Reverence in Prayer (RB 20). It is a calling forth of ourselves to a new and more authentic living; a dive into the deep; a naming of the truth of who we are before God. It is not a fear based compunction that we will enter into, but rather a compunction based on a deep desire to be in oneness with God.”


As more online Lenten Resources become available, they will be advertised in our weekly bulletin and will be added here.
