Arise Lent 2015Order your copies of ARISE: Lenten Program 2015, a 44-page weekly program published by the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong designed as a six-week Lenten resource for small groups, prayer companions, staff reflections, families and individuals.

By unpacking the Sunday Gospels during Lent, Sister Moya Hanlen olsh (Former Chancellor of the Diocese of Wollongong and respected Canon Lawyer) has written six beautiful Gospel Reflections that invite us to deepen our understanding of Jesus’ love for us unto death and to grasp anew the hope his Resurrection brings us. We are challenged to “arise” from our torpor, grasp his out-stretched hand and accompany Jesus on his journey through passion to death and resurrection.

Sr Moya’s teaching is beautifully complimented by Sister Hilda Scott OSB (Vocations Director, Jamberoo Abbey) and Father Michael Fallon msc's (world renowned Scripture Scholar) Spiritual Direction and Sr Hilda’s Guided Meditation.

ARISE also includes thought provoking reflection questions perfect for group discussion as well as a sung Responsorial Psalm and opening and closing prayer for each week.

ARISE is accompanied by a Triple CD Box Set available for purchase (physical CD’s or digital download). The CD’s contains six professionally recorded weekly Responsorial Psalms written and performed by Tracey Coombes (Holy Cross Helensburgh Music Ministry). Check out a sneek-peak of Tracey's beautiful Psalm for Week 4 of the program at the following link:

The CD Box Set also contains audio narrations of the Gospels by Jude Hennessy (Host of the “Journey Catholic Radio Show”) and Gospel Reflections by Sr Moya, Spiritual Direction by Sr Hilda and Fr Michael, and back by popular demand, Guided Meditation led by Sr Hilda (N.B. The Guided Meditation is only available on the CD’s or digital downloads).

The whole set is contained within the amazing artwork of Nelson Colo Matoma who has painted six new watercolour expressionism artworks for the program.

As always, the cost of the program has been kept as low as possible (from $5.00 including GST) to ensure the resource can be made widely available to local communities.

Delivery of the Program and CD Box sets are expected to begin at the end of January 2015.
