Parish Lenten Program 2023


Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, which is the greatest feast day on our Christian calendar. We can prepare for it by spending more time on prayer and participating in the beautiful devotion of the Stations of the Cross. These activities give us an opportunity to renew our relationship with God and one another and to grow in our understanding and appreciation of the beauty of our Catholic faith.

We encourage everyone to prepare for Easter by joining one of the groups below who will be meeting during Lent. Please see details in the church foyer and add your name to one of the lists or contact the parish office on 9344 7066.


Group 1. Tuesdays 9.30am (commence 21 Feb) at St Lawrence, Balcatta
Group 2. Tuesdays 7.30pm (commence 21 Feb) at parishioner's home, Balcatta. 
Group 3. Wednesdays 9am (commence 22 Feb) at St Teresas's, Gwelup
