The Church starts a new season in the Liturgical Calendar in preparation for the biggest feast Easter. This season is called Lent and it lasts for 40 days, this is followed by three special days called the Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday). The Church then celebrates the season of Easter for 50 days until the feast of Pentecost (the day the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles).
During these special seasons we are going to go on a journey of faith. The first part is our Lenten journey, seven weeks to Easter Sunday and our encounter with Jesus. Then we will continue for another seven weeks, our Easter journey. Our destination is the feast of Pentecost, also known as the “birthday of the Church” and we will celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit. Our journey involves following signs and symbols which we see and hear about in Church and on our response and our actions regarding these signs, to help us we are going to make a “Symbol Tree.”
We have recently collaborated with MCYN to come up with a resource pack to accompany young people aged 16+ throughout the four weeks of Advent. We encourage all leaders to make use of this resource which delves into the themes of hope, faith, joy and love through an exploration of 4 movies.
