Lenten Midday Reflection

Join Sacred Heart Parish as they host a special Lenten Midday Reflection at the Church on Shirley St, Monday, April 4 to Friday, April 8, 2011 every day from 12:10pm to 12:50pm. Just the right time to get there and get back to the office.

Fr Eugene Hensell OSB, a monk of St Meinrad Abbey will give a series of meditations on the readings for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

As these sessions will be conducted during your lunch hour, the Church will be providing a boxed lunch for participants. Come hungry and leave full as Fr Hensell fills you up with the Word of God.
The daily reflections shall be based on the following readings:
These daily presentations will be aimed at using the scriptures for Holy Week to tell the story of the last days of Jesus. This is a story of faith whose richness is captured in these very interesting and diverse passages from the bible. Seldom are we able to look at this "liturgical story" as a whole and to see just how powerful and inspirational it really is. Once we have encountered this story as presented by the Church's Holy Week liturgy we will understand why these three days are the most important days of the entire liturgical year. Hopefully it will also inspire us to actively participate in these high holy days with a deeper understanding and a desire to deepen our faith.
