The Sunday Gospels Of Lent

This year's series of Lenten talks follow the Gospel readings for each Sunday of Lent.

These Gospel texts have been specially chosen from earliest times in the Church to prepare all Christians for Easter and especially candidates who are to receive baptism at Easter. The speakers will draw treasures new and old from these readings to help equip contemporary Christians in their journey towards Easter and the promise of new life that it brings. 

The talks occur each Sunday at 4.30pm and are followed by tea and coffee, after which there is the option of attending Vespers in the Abbey Church at 6.00pm.

Talks will be streamed and available as recordings on the abbey website at www.glenstal.org.
