“Lent is for life”

March 23, 2010 in General, News

slieile_01_0The final gathering of “Lent is for Life” takes place next Tuesday, 30 March, in Slí Eile, Gardiner Street. All are welcome. Each week, through music, poetry and Scripture, young people have been offered a quiet, reflective space to explore their own personal lenten journeys where, according to the Slí Eile group leaders, even feelings of anxiety, self-doubt, uncertainty or seeming failure can be seen in the context of the hope offered in the Easter story. In the view of the Slí Eile leaders, “The lenten journey that we all undertake is a symbol for the longer journey of life, with its highs and lows, its successes and defeats. In that sense, Lent is for life and is more than just a six-week event in the liturgical calendar”.
