In Lent the church invites us to check up on what has happened, notice where we have taken a few bumps, lost a sense of direction and get caught up in habits that we are unable to stop.
We invite you to a change of heart this Lent and to experience an MOT for your soul.
Saturday 29 February 2020 - leap year day
10 am – 3 pm
Salesian House, 47 Surrey Lane, SW11 3PN
This event will be led by members of the Salesian network in Battersea and will consist of five short experiences that will get you thinking.
It will help you to re-tune your life to the Gospel.
Don't Leave it too late
My life is like a car!
It moves through time and moves through space
And hopefully with charm and grace.
It moves through moods both night and day
And carries me upon my way,
Through plans and timetables too tight
That wear me down and start to bite
The heart of who I want to be
I really need an MOT!
Lent is the church’s spring-cleaning time: a chance to refocus our lives on what is most important and measure ourselves against the Gospel of Jesus and his presence in our lives.
It involves recognising our frailty, that we are but dust, and putting what is most important back at the centre of our plans and relationships.
A good Lent means building self-control through fasting, restoring our interdependence through giving and reconnecting with Jesus in prayer.
An MOT will help you to lean into Lent and renew yourself for the journey that we must all make.
