Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent

Wednesday 26th February was Ash Wednesday, this marked the beginning of Lent.  All of the children went across to Mass at St. Chad’s Church and received ashes on their forehead.  The ashes remind us that during Lent we try to turn away from our sins.

During Lent we will be asking all of the children to think about the three words; Fast, Pray and Give.  We aim to provide lots of opportunities this Lent for all of the children to pray more, fast (give something up) and give alms.

Y3 Mass – The Conversion of St Mass

Thursday, 23 January 2020

Year 3 MassOn Thursday 23rd January, Year 3 prepared our school Mass, we anticipated the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul which is celebrated on the 25th of January.  The children from Year 3 prepared the readings and prayers for the Mass, they also learnt a lot about the life of St. Paul and his conversion.  The children prepared a display board containing some of their work about St. Paul, this was taken up to the altar at the start of Mass and provided a focal point for our prayers.  Fr. Paul was very impressed with how well the readers read, especially as this was only the second time that these children had led the Mass.
