9.00am    Wake up & Shake up LIVE

First thing in the morning we will dance and sing a song of joy ... especially for our ARK children and those young at heart.

9.30am     Morning Prayer*

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)."

The Decade of the Rosary
 

10.00am   'Listening to God in the scriptures and in our lives'

The Irenaeus Project is an initiative of the Archdiocese of Liverpool. It seeks to encourage Christian prayer and reflection as a way of living in order that people may journey towards life in its fullness and reveal the glory of God.

Fr Chris has known of the Maltfriscans since the very early days in Maltby and will be a familiar face for some of our Friscan family.

11.00am     Lectio 

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.

        Workshop 1  LIVE            Where will the church be after we get back to, ‘the new normal’? - With Jean W
Has God been speaking to you during this time? This workshop is an opportunity to share what he has been saying.
During this session, we will write a letter to the Church, writing in the style of St Paul who shared his hope, wisdom, and trust in God, with the developing church. The development continues. 
You will need paper and a pen.

         Workshop 2                  Gifts of the Holy Spirit - With Roberta Kelly

Roberta has been a member of the Maltfriscan Community since last year, but knew Fr May before he was one! When he was a curate in Barnsley she helped run his youth group, and went on to be a teacher, working with Ged for a while. She accommodated many Friscan prayer meetings at her house when Clare was a novice Friscan and she has been a friend of the community for many years.

             Workshop 3                Canticle writing - with Frances Norton
This workshop is designed for children, young people, and adults. I will take you through mind-mapping ideas so you can write your own Canticle of Thankfulness in the style of St Francis’ Brother Sun Canticle. I will give you prompts and pause for thought on what you are thankful for during this Global pandemic.

It doesn’t have to be big things, remember St Therese, all she had were little flowers.
Email me your finished canticle, or video yourself reading your canticle and send it to me. Happy writing. 

3.00pm   Virtual afternoon tea 

Join Anne & Maureen for a virtual afternoon tea full of cake, chat and ... tea!

 

5.30pm   Evening Prayer (Vespers)*

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.

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.
