This is the 40 days leading up to the most important feast in the Christian Calendar, the Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord at Easter.
Lent is a time to prepare, reflect, pray and give.
As a school, all classes have been thinking about Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving (giving to the needy).
We also think about the last journey of Christ before his crucifixion which we know as the Stations of the Cross.
As Fr. Barry said, 'We are all on a journey, with Christ, as we travel through this Lenten period'.
How will you prepare for Easter during this Lent?
Have you made your Lenten promise?
What extra things are you doing this Lent?
We are preparing in school by fasting, praying and raising money for Charities such as CAFOD.
