FSE Field Hospital
By Fr Michael Hansen SJ (JISA Ministries)
Pope Francis offered this image, 'I see the church as a field hospital after battle. The thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful.'
Amid the COVID-19 virus world we find ourselves in, Fr Michael Hansen SJ has created a Field Hospital of hospital departments and Ignatian spiritual exercises for those who, in lock down, illness or serving the sick, need critical help and healing now.
Each week a new item in the series will be added to this page.
The Parish is currently running some prayer groups with this focus and we are inviting parishioners to join a prayer group via Zoom (the Parish can assist you to set this up on your computer if you are unfamiliar). The groups are being led by Donna Bosnjak.
Meeting fortnightly for approximately 3/4 of an hour with 4-6 people in each group, they are given freely with various times slots available. Once you have registered your interest you will be sent some options for either a daytime or evening group. Limited places available.
The Spiritual Exercises are given with a different prayer focus each gathering, drawing on your lived experience, your present feelings and desire. Each exercise is prayed and reflected upon with an invitation to share your stories and graces.
Email your interest to Donna Bosnjak at firstname.lastname@example.org
