Change Our Hearts takes place during Lent, offering six faith-sharing sessions. Session one reflects on the central call of Ash Wednesday to “conversion,” both as “turning away from …” and as “turning toward ….”

Over the next four sessions your group explores the meaning of lifelong conversion via the great symbolic themes of the Lenten liturgy:

  • being transfigured
  • from thirst to water
  • from darkness to light
  • from Old Covenant written on stone to New Covenant written on our hearts.

Session six, during the week before Passion Sunday, leads us into Holy Week with Christ.

Change Our Hearts will help you deepen your faith, develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community, and reach out in service to others this Lent!
