ARISE: Lenten Program 2015 - SOLD OUT! | PDF Books and CDs still available

Arise Header Web

A big thank you to every one who purchased our ARISE: Lenten Program 2015.

The demand for the program has been unprecedented and as of today we have officially sold out of all the books.

There are still a few copies of the physical Triple CD Box Set available (also available as a digital download) which essentially contains the same content as the book but without the opening and closing prayers.

As there is still two weeks to go before Ash Wednesday and we are getting continous orders, we have decided to make the book available as a PDF for people to print themselves for $4.00 per printed copy (we will be relying on the honour system of customers telling us how many copies they intend to print.)

Make sure you provide us with an email address on your order form so that we can send you a link to download the PDF copy of the program once we have processed your order.

ARISE: Lenten Program 2015, a 44-page weekly program published by the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong designed as a six-week Lenten resource for small groups, prayer companions, staff reflections, families and individuals.

By unpacking the Sunday Gospels during Lent, Sr Moya Hanlen OLSH (Former Chancellor of the Diocese of Wollongong and respected Canon Lawyer) has written six beautiful Gospel Reflections that invite us to deepen our understanding of Jesus’ love for us unto death and to grasp anew the hope his Resurrection brings us. We are challenged to “arise” from our torpor, grasp his out-stretched hand and accompany Jesus on his journey through passion to death and resurrection.

Sr Moya’s teaching is beautifully complimented by Sr Hilda Scott OSB (Vocations Director, Jamberoo Abbey) and Fr Michael Fallon MSC’s (world renowned Scripture Scholar) Spiritual Direction and Sr Hilda’s Guided Meditation.

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

ARISE is accompanied by a Triple CD Box Set available for purchase (physical CD’s or digital download). The CD’s contains six professionally recorded weekly Responsorial Psalms written and performed by Tracey Coombes (Holy Cross Helensburgh Music Ministry). Check out Tracey's beautiful Psalms for Week 3 and Week 6 of the program at the following links (or listen to a preview of all the tracks on the Triple CD at the digital download page):

The CD Box Set also contains audio narrations of the Gospels by Jude Hennessy (Host of the “Journey Catholic Radio Show”) and Gospel Reflections by Sr Moya, Spiritual Direction by Sr Hilda and Fr Michael, and back by popular demand, Guided Meditation led by Sr Hilda (N.B. The Guided Meditation is only available on the CD’s or digital downloads).

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