WORKSHOP 1: ALEX CHIA

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “by the solemn forty days of Lent the Church unites herself each year to the mystery of Jesus in the desert.” (CCC 540)So, for us to enter well into the season of Lent, we need to understand the mystery of Jesus in the desert.
This talk will explore these questions:
What is the mystery of Jesus in the desert?
How does it relate to our Christian life?
How does it relate to the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and alms-giving?  

WORKSHOP 2: ROBERT LORETZ

Following the Lamb wherever He Goes – 40 days in the desert

WORKSHOP 3: Fr MONTY BAMFORD

Palm Sunday

Mass of the Lord’s Supper
