In 2024, starting Wednesday 21 February the Convocation is offering Praying Lent, a 5 sessions online Lenten course aimed to deepen our prayer life and spiritual development. The Convocation Canon for Spiritual Development Ali Gray, will be hosting 5 weekly sessions on zoom to help deepen our prayer lives. The sessions will be relaxed, gentle and invitational, we will practice centring prayer and journaling, the Examen, Lectio Divina, imaginative prayer and praying with art and poetry. They will last 90 minutes and will include time sharing our experiences- both struggles and joys, introduction to, and guided practice of each mode of prayer, and finish with compline.

All are welcome, beginners and experts, for one session or every week. There is no need to book just turn up. Further information, clarification or questions: agray@tec-europe.org
