Finding Hope in a Hopeless World is a seven session resource which can be used by groups and individuals as we prepare for Easter

The Christian message is one of hope, yet living in a world that is often touched by war, violence, and brokenness can make hope seem more fragile.

Pope Francis said, “We must fan the flame of hope that has been given us, and help everyone to gain new strength and certainty by looking to the future with an open spirit, a trusting heart and far-sighted vision.” He calls Christians to be ‘pilgrims of hope,’ who carry the light of Christ into every situation.

Each week, a new reflection will be added to the diocesan website found at:
