Pray As You Go Examen Audio Resource

We have partnered with JRS/USA and Pray As You Go to create an audio resource to help you pray an Examen to reflect on the experience of refugees.

The Examen prayer is a popular method of praying developed by St Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. The prayer is focused on reflecting God’s presence in a particular experience. We have worked to create an Examen to help you prayerfully reflect on the experience of refugees.

The resource was launched on World Refugee Day, Sunday 20th June.

Lent is a time of repentance and renewal for Christians. It is a time when we turn away from our sinfulness and recommit ourselves to following Jesus.

The Way of the Cross

Praying the Stations of the Cross is a traditional way of praying during Lent. We pray this familiar prayer to be with Jesus Christ who walked this journey, carrying the cross, the instrument of his death, out of love and commitment to us.

We have developed these Stations of the Cross meditations to aid your prayer during Lent and Holy Week. You can use this resource as a Parish Group, school, as a family, or individually.
