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.
