BIBLE BASICS & LECTIO DIVINA : PRAYING WITH SCRIPTURE
LENTEN STUDY DAY: 2 dates, Wednesday 11 March & Saturday 14 March 2020
10am – 5pm
In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven meets His children with great love and speaks with them.
Vatican II (Dei Verbum 21)
The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have designated 2020 as a Year in celebration of The God who Speaks, inviting the Church in England and Wales to listen afresh to the Word of God as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunciation, to encounter anew the presence of that Word and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.1
The Bishops’ Conference has stated very clearly that Scripture is at the centre of everything the Church does. The Word of God shapes our prayer and worship.
In this Lenten Study Day, we will explore how the Word of God can shape our personal life and prayer. We will learn about the ancient practice of Lectio Divina.
If you have ever wondered “How do we really pray with Scripture?”, this study day is a must!
This study day is designed to enhance your experience of prayer with Scripture and to help you to have a more profound experience of the Mass and the Liturgy of the Church.
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
During this study day, we follow in the footsteps of the early Christians, studying together, praying together, and being nourished together at the Eucharistic Banquet. There are also opportunities to enjoy social time and fellowship with staff members, fellow disciples, and the Oratory Fathers.
Places are limited. Please register as soon as possible to ensure you have a reserved place.
Cost for the Day (including lunch): £49.
