Here in Gorton there are many opportunities to spend time with Jesus in different ways. This helps us to fall in love with Him. That is the purpose of our lives! Lent is an experience of deepening our Faith and Love leading into Holy Week where we are immersed in the very core of what we are about. without Holy Week our Faith has no significance!
