Lenten Study Groups

A group will be held in the vicarage at 2.30 pm on Wednesdays, starting on the 14th February. This will be based on the Archbishop of Canterbury's 2018 Lent Book: Luigi Gioia, Say it to God: in Search of Prayer. This group will be led by Fr Hugh and Carol O'Connor.

The second Lent Group commences after High Mass in the hall — "Friends and Companions: books that have shaped my Theology", led each week by a different member of St Peter's clergy and laity.
  • Lent 1 — 18th February; Carol O'Connor on Rowan Williams: Silence and Honeycakes
  • Lent 2 — 25th February; Nick Browne on Ursula Le Guin: A Wizard of Earthsea
  • Lent 3 — 4th March; Fr Philip Gill on Rowan Williams: Being Christian
  • Lent 4 — 11th March; Colleen Clayton on Richard Rohr: Dancing Standing Still
  • Lent 5 — 18th March; Fr Greg Davies on Stephen Chalke: Redeeming the Cross
  • Palm Sunday — 25th March; Fr Hugh Kempster on Julian of Norwich: A Revelation of Love.

Mystics Group

Fr Hugh welcomes parishioners and friends of St Peter's to an informal study group at the vicarage, on Wednesdays between 2.30 and 3.30 pm. During Lent, this group will become the Lenten Study Group outlined above.
If you would like to join the group, contact the Parish Office on 9622 2391.
