MERCY: Lenten Program 2016 | Order Now!

website banner mercy

We are delighted to announce that the Diocese of Wollongong is now taking orders for our MERCY - Lenten Program 2016 book and Triple CD Resource.

Continuing the tradition from past years, MERCY is a weekly program, primarily for group use, based on the Sunday Scripture readings during Lent. The name and theme of the program is in response to Pope Francis' Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.

We have secured the wisdom of Fr Ken Barker MGL (Head of the Missionaries of God's Love) and Sr Hilda Scott OSB (Vocations Director, Jamberoo Abbey) to lead us in our reflections for Lent. Both Fr Ken and Sr Hilda's academic and spiritual expertise is in the area of mercy, and we are convinced that the reflections they have written will change lives. Through this program, participants will experience a personal encounter with our merciful God like never before.

Resident artist, Nelson Colo Matoma, is on board again and has painted seven beautiful original acrylic-based artworks for the program.



The program is accompanied by a Triple CD resource that includes audio narrations of the Scripture readings by Jude Hennessy (Journey Catholic Radio) and audio narrations of the reflections by Fr Ken and Sr Hilda. We will have samples of the audio narrations in the coming weeks. The CD resource also contains the Sunday psalms for Lent beautifully put to contemporary music from the Cry Out CD by Tracey Coombes.

N.B. The Cry Out CD containing the psalms for Advent 2015 and Lent 2016 is still available to purchase as a separate CD for those that like to listen to the music as a stand alone CD. However, if you already own the Cry Out CD and do not wish to use the audio narrations or the bonus liturgical resources (see below), then you do not need to purchase the Triple CD Resource.


As a bonus this year, the book and triple CD resource includes special liturgical resources (including music) for the Year of Mercy compiled by our Diocesan Liturgy Coordinator, Paul Mason. These resources will assist parishes, schools and communities celebrate the Year of Mercy during Lent, especially the 24 Hours for the Lord. We will have samples of the special liturgical resources in the coming weeks.
