We are now in the Liturgical season of Lent as we prepare for Easter.

There are several ways we can journey through Lent. We can give up something for Lent such as our favourite food, or a destructive habit such as gossiping. We can take up something for Lent such as kind deeds. We can also pay more attention to our prayer life.

Ignatian Spirituality has developed ways to assist us with this. These include praying through Arts and Faith, reflection and an online retreat among others. The following link will take you to a page explaining how to participate in these initiatives.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a way of celebrating God’s forgiveness and love.

In preparation for Easter, we are invited to begin anew by celebrating Reconciliation.

Lent, in the liturgical year, is known as a penitential season. Confession is a natural step as part of this journey with a renewed focus on Christ.

Fr Eka Tanaya SJ will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Chapel of the Holy Name, Athelstone during second lunch (1:00 – 1:20pm) on Tuesdays leading up to Easter. Students, staff and the wider community are welcome to attend. No bookings are necessary.

You are also able to contact your local parish for times the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered.
