ENCOUNTER: Lenten Program - less than 800 copies left!

ENCOUNTER - Lenten Program 2014
Catholic Diocese of Wollongong

One week until Lent - books almost sold out!

Lent is just one week away and we have almost sold out of the  ENCOUNTER: Lenten Program 2014 books . We have less than 800 copies left so this is your last opportunity to order before they sell out.

Unfortunately, we have already sold out of the Triple CD Resource, however you can still download the audio files for free at in order to make your own CD copies. If you are having trouble downloading the audio files and burning your own copies, please contact Rachel on the number below and we will do our best to help you through the process.

By unpacking the Sunday Gospels during Lent, Discalced Carmelite Friar, Fr Greg Homeming OCD,  looks at how we see and encounter Jesus Christ in our own lives. Fr Greg is a popular conference, spirituality and retreat speaker in Australia and overseas. Fr Greg's teaching is beautifully complimented by  Sr Hilda Scott OSB's (Vocations Director, Jamberoo Abbey) Spiritual Direction and Guided Meditation. Sr Hilda has a wonderful way of showing us God in the every day.

ENCOUNTER also includes thought provoking reflection questions perfect for group discussion as well as a sung Responsorial Psalm (see below) and an opening and closing prayer for each week.

Accompanying audio files are available for download for free at The audio files contain a weekly Responsorial Psalm composed by  Paul Mason and performed by nationally acclaimed soloist, Louise Symes  as well as audio versions of the Gospels and Gospel Reflections by Fr Greg, Spiritual Direction by Sr Hilda as well as (for the first time) Guided Meditation led by Sr Hilda (N.B. The Guided Meditation is only available on the audio files).

The whole is contained within the beautiful artwork of Nelson Colo Matoma who has painted six new watercolour expressionism artworks for the program.
