Year Six begin their journey through Lent

We are now in the church season of Lent. For Christians, Lent is a time of solemn reflection as we seek the Lord in prayer; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting. We joined the wider church family at Mass on Wednesday for the imposition of the ashes: a sign of our penance and a reminder of our own mortality.

Back in school, we reflected on how we can bring our lives closer to God during the season of Lent, ready to share in the joy of the promise of new life at Easter.

We made Lenten promises, remembering that we are called, not only to give up luxuries, but to make our lives better by following Christ more faithfully. We wrote our promises and sealed them in golden envelopes on our RE display.
