Event description
Quiet Day: Preparing to Celebrate the season of Lent (Angela Wills)

About this event

Perhaps our hearts sink a little as we notice that Lent is coming round again? Many of us will be called on to feed and inspire others in the coming weeks – and maybe already we can feel the guilt about what we should or should not be doing.

The day is an invitation to take time to turn aside from all that busyness and turn, like Moses, towards “the miracle of the lit bush” (RS Thomas: The Bright Field). It will be a time to explore gently what gifts the Lord wants to offer each of us personally this Lent. We will draw on poetry, music, and scripture – and lots of quiet contemplation.

Angela Wills is a Spiritual Director and a member of Portsmouth (RC) Diocesan Spirituality Formation Team. She has been involved in Adult Education most of her life, firstly teaching Modern Languages. Later, she took a BA in Theology and subsequently worked for 10 years as an Advisor in Collaborative Ministry for Portsmouth Diocesan Department for Pastoral Formation. She has an MA in Biblical Studies and particularly enjoys working with groups to make the Scriptures become alive and accessible.
