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)."

10.00am   'Listening during Lockdown and Pressing on'

Matt is one of our cradle Maltfriscans, an accomplished musician and a proud Yorkshire man with a passion for GAA Football. He studied for his Theology degree at St Mary's, Twickenham, before going on to become a primary school teacher. This summer Matt is moving on to explore a vocational life with the Carmelite community down south in Aylesford (where they pronounce their words very differently). In this video he will explore aspects of the Rule committed Maltfriscans live by and share some of the questions, thoughts and challenges these reflections have left him with. 

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.
 

12.15pm    Lunchtime Social

Especially for those who are working and would like to connect with the community briefly during a lunch break. Pop on and join us for as long as you like or are able.

2.00pm   Reconciliation Reflection

During our physical week together we always take time to be together and share the love of the Father through our reconciliation service. This year David OC has created a short reflection on PowerPoint for us to use. We take time to remember we are held in the love of the Father regardless of our failings.
Please be patient as it downloads.

                  Rosary Reflection

During lockdown Paul began to think about what he wanted to share with treasures he wanted to share with his sons. This reflection is his gift to them and he shares it with us. For those who would like to reflect more deeply on the rosary click above. Click here for the PDF.

                  Petcha Kucha Reflection

Not got long, this is a 6 minute reflection with Jacquie.  Petcha Kutcha is Japanese for chatter. Its 20 slides, 20 secs long. Hopefully this little Petcha Kutcha will get you thinking about St Joseph in a whole new way.

                  Spoken word Reflection

Michaela, Ben & Amy J bring us their reflection on the Year of the Word in verse and rhyme.

All are welcome to join the conversation.

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.

7.00pm   Party Time

I am sure most of you are a dab hand at zoom parties now. Let's hope all those weeks of quizzing have paid off for tonight's fun and games!

9.00pm  Night Prayer*

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.

* 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.
