Diocesan Spiritual Renewal Programme


Everyone in the diocese is invited to participate in a programme of spiritual renewal based on the theme: The Catholic Diocese of Christchurch is a community of missionary disciples who love God, love each other, and go out to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the World. This Programme consists of an invitation to every group in the Diocese to have two sessions of prayer, based on the Lectio Divina model, between Ash Wednesday and Pentecost Sunday. Everybody is invited to pray and share together, in existing groups or new groups, on scriptural passages focussed on mission. Participants will reflect on how we are called to go out to others in our parishes, schools and communities. More information for this programme is available below or by contacting Matt O’Connell on 366-9869 or moconnell@chch.catholic.org.nz
