This Wednesday, 17 February, is Ash Wednesday and begins the holy season of Lent. Although our Churches are closed and we cannot gather together to pray, you are still encouraged to pray at home and grow closed to God during this penitential season. The Bishops' Conference of Scotland has produced some resources for praying at home.
