To help us all journey as a People of God in Cork and Ross through this Lent, I invite you and parishioners to join in a series of short reflections each Wednesday afternoon during Lent at 1.30pm beginning this week.
The first of this series of short reflections will be live-streamed on this Wednesday Feb 24th at 1.30pm on both the Diocesan Facebook and YouTube channels. Details of links to join in this short reflection are available on the Diocesan Website.
These reflections have been prepared by Elaine O’Sullivan (Chaplain at MICC, Dunmanway) and Fr. James McSweeney (Chaplain, Bantry Community College). Each week they will be joined by a guest to reflect on different aspects of our Lenten journey.
This week Br. Martin Kenneally, a Presentation Brother, will reflect on Hope. “Christian faith does not give us easy answers or take away our pain — but it does give us hope.”
You are asked to share details of this Lenten series of reflections on your parish website and social media platforms. A personal invitation to people during live-streamed parish Mass on Wednesday morning would also be helpful and encouraging.
Let us continue to keep each other in prayer.
Yours sincerely in Christ
✠ Fintan Gavin
Bishop of Cork and Ross
