Missio invites you to join us for  prayer and reflection during Lent.

Below you will find messages from missionaries and friends of Missio, Reconciliation Meditations created specially for Lent 2024, and Gospel reflections for the six Sundays of Lent. 

All these films can be used as part of our Flexible Lent Journey Planner, which seeks to help you design and experience a fruitful Lent which works on a personal level.
