2017 Lenten Series
It’s only January, but Lent is on its way! We will once again release a Lenten Series to help us prepare for Easter and to continue in our
pastoral planning process. This year’s series will focus on formation, one of our three pastoral themes. With the help of feedback and
suggestions from all of you across the Archdiocese, this year’s four part series features an updated format to make it easier to participate
in the series and share the content in small groups. Although the content is flexible enough to accommodate groups of any size, we highly encourage its use in small groups of 8-10 people.
Establishing a group in your own parish or community is easy and the materials are available at no cost to you. If this interests you, you
can start forming a group now to meet during Lent for the series! Keep your eyes open for more information in the Halifax-Yarmouth News.
Our website is functional, however, we are always making modifications and enhancements. Please check back often.
Comments, suggestions or requests are welcome, we can be reached though the Webmaster Page on the site by clicking here.
