Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. The children in upper key stage 2 attend the local parish mass to start our lent journey.
Lent is the period of six weeks (40 days, not including Sundays) leading up to Easter, the most important festival in the Christian calendar. For those of us already baptised, it is a time to focus on premises made in Baptism and to seek Reconciliation, so as to celebrate Easter worthily.
Mini Vinnies, School Council and Faith in Action groups in school, prepare sacred spaces during Lent for reflection and prayer.
