Journey Through Lent

Gloucester Cathedral and the Parish of Hempsted with St Mary de Lode and St Mary de Crypt, Gloucester

Wednesday 1 March - Saturday 15 April 2017

For centuries, the 40 days from Ash Wednesday through to Holy Week and Easter have been used by Christians as a dedicated time for exploring faith and spirituality.

Whether you are just beginning to explore Christianity, keen to know more or wanting to go deeper, we hope there is something in our varied Lent programme that can encourage and help you in your faith journey. 

There will also be a short reflection for each day of Lent on the Cathedral’s Facebook page.
