You are invited to join us for our Lent Small Groups using the book “Restore” by Sister Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, provided for free by our parish. Our small groups will kick off on February 19th at 2:00pm in the church with childcare available. We will end with a celebration on April 19th–more information to come. We look forward to journeying together this Lenten season!
When are small groups?
Small groups will meet starting with Kick off on February 19th and go for six weeks. You will pick your preferred day and meeting time when you register and we will match you into groups.
I already have a small group. Can we join?
Yes, we just ask that all participants register so we have enough materials. Register here and put your group leader’s first and last name please!
Can you tell me a little about the book “Restore”?
**The book is provided for free by the parish**
Follow the Lord into the depths of your heart this Lent and you will never be the same.
Take a healing journey with Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, as she helps you turn away from what wounds you and toward God who heals you and makes you whole.
In this beautiful guided journal for prayer and meditation, Sr. Miriam invites you to meet the tenderness of God’s mercy, the power of his love, and the restoration of your heart and life as you practice prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
Restore features stunning original art by Valerie Delgado of Pax.Valerie along with daily meditations on a passage from scripture, reflection questions, guided prayer, and space for journaling and notetaking.
Throughout Lent, you’ll move through four different phases of healing, focusing on traditional Lenten practices:
- Prayer is the means of healing our relationship with God.
- Fasting disciplines us in healing our relationship with ourselves.
- Almsgiving leads us to healing our relationships with others.
- Sacrifice shows us the path to heaven and union with God.
If you enter into Lent with Christ, your heart will see more clearly, be pierced more easily, love more strongly, and serve more passionately. Jesus will be etched into the crevasses of your being.
