Weekend Course over 8 Saturdays

The course will be held as well in 8 Saturdays during Lent and Easter at St Mary of the Angels RC Church (Bayswater London).

The Course allows for a deeper immersion into Spiritual Life in the grace of Lent and Easter. It seeks to transmit the necessary basis for spiritual life. The Course will allow participants to understand what spiritual life is and also how to effectively put what they learn into practice.

  1. Lectio Divina: How to listen to Jesus through the Holy Scriptures, and how to put His word into practice daily.
  2. Prayer of the Heart: How to pray and connect with Jesus with our heart (how to immerse ourselves in Him in order to be nourished by Him)
