The sessions will be live-streamed via the Catholic Voice YouTube site. To create a more personal experience participants are encouraged to gather in Lenten groups each week of the program. This might be in their Deanery, Parish, School or Communities  where individuals can Walk in the Spirit, together.

Walk in the Spirit runs live for six consecutive Thursday evenings from 7.30pm to 9:00pm, beginning on the day after Ash Wednesday, February 18. Each session will be available to view live or to download from the Catholic Voice YouTube site after the event, so you can watch the session in your Lenten Group any time.

A key aspect of the Walk in the Spirit Lenten Renewal Experience is participation in the Encounter Night. These Encounter Nights will take place in identified parishes around the Archdiocese, and will be supported by leaders from the movements, ministries and ecclesial communities across the Archdiocese.

Please ensure you register below to receive up-to-date information on engaging your Lenten Group into an Encounter Night near you.

Sessions 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 will be live-streamed and available on the Catholic Voice Youtube channel. These sessions we invite you to view in your Lenten groups.

Session 3 will explore the need to be reconciled to God. During this week we strongly encourage all participants to attend reconciliation either in their parishes or where available.

Session 5  (March 18) is the ‘Encounter Night’. This night is the culmination of the our Lenten renewal experience where we encourage all participants to come together at a  hub in their region. The Encounter Night will be a special evening where prayer teams will be available to pray with participants for a deeper outpouring for the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
