He Is Risen! Halleluia!
We have been celebrating the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and learning about his gift to us, the Holy Spirit.
Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent for all Christian faiths and, of course, Catholics everywhere.
It is a time to think and reflect on lives as Catholics, take time to better serve our families and friends and our local community and to give up something we take for granted so we might better appreciate what we have omitted from our lives.
In school, we performed a service on Ash Wednesday where the children left a prayer on a coloured footprint around our cross. The prayers asked for help in trying to follow in Jesus' steps so that the children might become better Catholics.
