Children from Pre-Reception upwards and staff gathered together to mark the beginning of Lent in our Ash Wednesday service, which was led by Fr Gary. The service reflected on repentance, thinking of others and preparing ourselves for the joy of Easter, with Fr Gary highlighting the three aspects that we need to focus on during the coming weeks: prayer; doing something extra to help others and giving something up.

Upper Two assisted in leading the liturgy and read beautifully and the younger children responded enthusiastically to Fr Gary’s homily.
The school community received ashes on their foreheads with the words, ‘Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel’.
