Quiet Space for Lent in Belfast Cathedral

Tuesday February 11th 2014

Space for ReflectionBelfast Cathedral is creating space for reading and reflection for clergy and lay readers of all denominations each Wednesday during Lent.

The cathedral library provides a comfortable space with well–stocked shelves and Wi–Fi, while photocopying and printing can be facilitated.

Anyone with a particular subject interest can let the librarian (paul@belfastcathedral.org) know in advance of a visit and the books will be located for them.

Space for quiet and private prayer is available for those who wish it and spiritual direction will be available by arrangement.

Holy Communion will be celebrated at 8.30am in the Chapel of Unity and visitors are invited to come for this service and stay until after Choral Evensong finishes at 6.15pm (with the exception of Ash Wednesday when there will be a Eucharist at 7.00pm).

Tea and Coffee facilities are available and a soup and sandwich lunch can be provided on request. A nominal price of £5 covers refreshments, lunch and parking in the cathedral car park.

The Space for Reflection days are available to serving and retired Clergy and Lay Readers. A warm welcome is extended to all denominations in this respect.

For anyone for whom Wednesdays are not possible, please contact the Cathedral which will aim to offer a day that does.

To register please contact Mary Wilson Conway by telephone on 028 9032 8332 or by email mary@belfastcathedral.org

Beginning on Ash Wednesday the dates for the Space for Reflection days are:

Ash Wednesday 5 March
