First thing in the morning we will dance and sing a song of joy ... especially for our ARK children and those young at heart.
Morning prayer is intended and arranged to sanctify the morning. St. Basil the Great gives an excellent description of this character in these words: "It is said in the morning in order that the first stirrings of our mind and will may be consecrated to God and that we may take nothing in hand until we have been gladdened by the thought of God, as it is written: 'I was mindful of God and was glad' (Ps 77:4)."
Jayne is one of the founding members of the community, Her passions lie in Inclusion and supporting families and children with disabilities. You can often find her hiding from the world in her 'she' shed where she loves to paint and experiment with resin. Present 40 years ago when the community was given the O Dear White Rose prayer its always a gift to listen to Jaynes insights.
A social drop-in with no agenda to touch base and have a catch-up.
At 2pm a group will split off for discussions on the morning's input (please join before 2 to be part of this group discussion).
Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfils Jesus' command to "pray always" (Luke 18:1; see also 1 Thessalonians 5:17). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.
Lectio Divina is a Latin term which means "divine reading" and describes a way of reading the Scriptures whereby we gradually let go of our own agenda and open ourselves to what God wants to say to us. The Word of God is alive and active and will transform each of us if we open ourselves to receive what God wants to give us.
All welcome to join our celebration of Mass with Mgr Mark Crisp.
In this Mass there is an opportunity for new & old Friscans to commit to the Maltfriscan Rule for the year ahead.
Please open the chat box to access the words to the songs.
Following straight on from our celebration of Mass there will be an opportunity to chill and socialise .... who knows this may even carry on after night prayer in good Friscan style!
Night prayer is the last prayer of the day, said before we head to bed. The Psalms that are chosen for Night Prayer are full of confidence in the Lord. As children of the promise we gather in that confidence and end our day together. After night prayer each night a social time will continue for anyone who would like to grab a drink and stay on the call.
* These zooms will be recorded and available for those unable to attend 2 hours after the LIVE session. Please ensure your camera is switched off in these sessions if you do not wish to be recorded.
