St Peter & Emmaus Church

Lent is a time to :

  • Prepare for Easter
  • Give up a habit or thing that distracts us from God.
  • Give in to a challenge to bring us closer to God.

It's a great time to take up a prayer challenge or bible reading challenge. There are ideas for this on our Pray and Read pages in this website.
