RECOMMENDED READING BOOK to cover all basic prayer skills
Following the highly popular BBC series ‘The Big Silence’, this year’s Archdiocesan Lenten Reading Book is ‘Growing into Silence’. This is an easy to read and easy to use book for individuals or groups and ideal for parish faith formation, especially growth in prayer and reflection. The Archdiocesan Pastoral Resources Office will produce guidelines for Group Leaders, for those who wish to use this is in a communal setting. This resource is also adaptable for ecumenical groups.
