The Ash Wednesday Mass will begin at 9.00am in the church and be led by the Year 5/6 class. All are welcome to attend. Ash Wednesday signals the start of Lent. Lent is a time of fasting, prayer and works of mercy for others. In the Early Church, people preparing for baptism spent 40 days fasting and praying as an act of repentance. It grew into a time for the whole church to repent and renew their baptismal promises. Jesus himself spent 40 days praying in the desert. Lent finishes on Easter Sunday.
During Lent help us to keep our eyes on Jesus.
Help us to spend more time talking and listening to you.
Help us to share what we have with others and be sorry for times we have done wrong.
